Heat capacity from internal degrees of freedom. (3) Consider a two~level

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

is the level splitting. The Schottky anomaly is a very useful tool for'deter
mining energy level splittings of ions in rare~earth and transitiongroup
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 JahnkeEmde. Heat capacity meaSurements on YIG are re—
