The thermalization process of the energy released by α-particles in superconducting crystals used as absorber for μ-calorimeters is studied for an extended sample of materials at temperatures between 40 and 100 mK.

The simple dependence of the thermalization times on T/TDebye already observed is confirmed. Results on the effect of coatings with Bismuth and Copper on Rhenium are also reported.
