Abstract

Specific-heat measurements with improved precision on two new samples of YBa2Cu3O7−δ with relatively low concentrations of paramagnetic centers are reported. For one sample the measurements were made for different values of δ. The data are analyzed, and the data reported earlier for another sample reanalyzed, with an improved fitting expression. In each case, the data give a well defined H1/2T term in the mixed state. No persuasive evidence for a T2 term in the superconducting state is found.
