Title:
Specific {{Heat}} of the {{Skyrmion Lattice Phase}} and {{Field}}-{{Induced Tricritical Point}} in {{MnSi}}
Abstract:
We report high-precision measurements of the temperature and magnetic field dependence of the specific heat, C(T,H), across the magnetic phase diagram of MnSi. Clear anomalies establish the Skyrmion lattice unambiguously as a thermodynamic phase. The evolution of the specific heat anomalies, the field dependence of the entropy released at the phase transitions, and the temperature versus field dependence of crossover lines provide striking evidence of a tricritical point at $\mu$0HintTCP=340 mT...    »
