Aharonov-Bohm resistance oscillations of mesoscopic silver rings are found to be enhanced times when contact to the ring is made with bismuth rather than silver or gold electrodes. An argument based on the idea that a mismatch of the Fermi surfaces at the interfaces leads to a reduced effective electrode size is shown to be inadequate, as the resistance oscillations exceed the maximum theoretical value of Altshuler, Aronov and Spivak (1991) by an order of magnitude.
