We present a theoretical study of the nonlocal anomalous Hall effect induced by heavy-metal impurities in dilute magnetic alloys based on noble metals. The results of our first-principles calculations are shown in comparison to those obtained within a model consideration via Matthiessen’s rule. Based on the transport properties of the constituent binary alloys, we reveal optimal host-impurity combinations to enhance the phenomenon. In particular, this allows us to explain experimental findings showing a strong effect in Cu-based alloys but a vanishing effect in the case of the Au host.
