High Magnetic Field Micro-Calorimeter and Application for BE-Condensation of Cr5+ Dimer System
A micro-calorimeter working at ultra-low temperature down to 75 mK and high magnetic field up to 17.5 T has been developed. A typical sample weight is as small as 100 μg. A magnetic phase diagram of magnon Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) in Ba3Cr2O8 is determined. The scaling index of the phase boundary is very close to that of the isotropic three dimensional BEC at low temperature, in spite of the existence of Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya (DM) interaction which is confirmed in the previous ESR measurement.
