    • Abstract

       

      Nuclear demagnetisation as a means of refrigeration has been proposed and achieved long ago. In this paper an attempt has been made to show that PrBe13, a Van-Vleck paramagnet, can be used to produce a lattice temperature of 10µK. or lower. Such a calculation can be used for a computer simulation of the process.
