Low Temperature Heat Capacity of Disordered ZrZn2
It was pointed out recentlyl that the Curie temperature of the weak ferromagnet ZrZn2 is quite sensitive to lattice order and that it decreases with increased disorder. A well-disordered (or amorphous) ZrZn2 can be prepared effectively by quick condensation; we report here our results of low temperature heat capacity on such samples.
