We have examined the temperature dependence of voltage ("1/f") noise in Cu and Ag films on quartz and sapphire substrates. Our data suggest that two types of voltage noise occur simultaneously in metal films. One type of noise depends on the substrate and is weakly temperature-dependent; the remaining noise is strongly temperature-dependent and independent of the substrate.
