We have studied the magnetoresistance of Au-Pd wires with diameters of order 500 AIS, in the temperature range 115 K. These measurements yield an electron phase-coherence time which varies with temperature as T-2/3. This temperature dependence suggests that we have observed the one-dimensional Nyquist time predicted theoretically by Altshuler and coworkers.
