Abstract

Previous heat capacity measurement in zero magnetic field for the low-density second-layer solid 3He adsorbed on graphite showed a peculiar double peak structure. From this measurement a "quantum spin liquid (QSL)" ground state has been suggested. Increasing the magnetic field, theories predict a transition from a QSL phase to a long-range ordered phase called "uuud" at a certain threshold field, which is a measure of the spin gap of the QSL phase. Here we describe an experimental setup for heat capacity measurements of 2D 3He to test the predictions at temperatures below 200 μK in magnetic fields up to 1.2 T.
