Anomalous temperature dependence of paraelectric relaxation at very low temperatures

  • K. Knop

Hydroxyl doped KCl crystals were subjected to two dimensional stress in a (001)-plane so that the paraelectric hydroxyl dipoles can be described by a double-well system with a small tunneling splitting. In the temperature range from 0.025 to 0.3 K this system exhibits a dielectric relaxation rate that increases with decreasing temperature.
