Heat capacity from internal degrees of freedom. (3) Consider a two~level system with an energy splitting kBA between upper and lower states; the split- ting may arise from a magnetic field or in other ways Show that the heat capac— ity per system is _ LU— "— (A/T)2 eMT C * (er)A “‘1‘” (1+ 8"”)2' The function is plotted in Fig. 12. Peaks of this type in the heat capacity are often known as Schottky anomalies. The maximum heat capacity is quite high, but for T < A and for T > A the heat capacity is low. (1)) Show that for T >> A we have C E kB(A/2T)Z+- - - . The hyperfine interaction between nuclear and electronic magnetic moments in paramagnetic salts (and in systems having electron spin order) causes splittings with A z i to 100 mK. These splittings are often detected experimentally by the presence of a term in l/T2 in the heat capacity in the region T> A. Nuclear electric quadrupole interactions (see Chapter 16) with crystal fields also cause splittings, as in Fig. 13. 0.5 0.4 9 w .0 to Heat capacity in units 128 0.1 x=T/A Figure 12 Heat capacity of a two—level system as a function of TIA, where A is the level splitting. The Schottky anomaly is a very useful tool for'deter- mining energy level splittings of ions in rare~earth and transition-group metals, compounds, and alloys. 3, Heat capacity of magnons. Use the approximate magnon dispersion relation to = Ak'2 to find the leading term in the heat capacity of a three~dimensional fer- romagnet at low temperatures kBT < j. The result is 0.113 kn(knT/fz.A)3"2, per unit volume. The zeta Function that enters the result may be estimated numerically; it is tabulated in Jahnke-Emde.
