Thermal expansion studies on low-dimensional frustrated quantum magnets: the case of Kappa-(BEDT-TTF) 2 Cu 2 (CN) 3 and azurite

Thermal expansion measurements provide a sensitive tool for exploring a material's thermodynamic

Thermal expansion measurements provide a sensitive tool for exploring a material's thermodynamic
properties in condensed matter physics as they provide useful information
on the electronic, magnetic and lattice properties of a material. In this thesis, thermal
expansion measurements have been carried out both at ambient-pressure and under hydrostatic
pressure conditions. From the materials point of view, the spin-liquid candidate
Kappa-(BEDT-TTF) 2 Cu 2(CN)3 has been studied extensively as a function of temperature and
magnetic field. Azurite, Cu 3 (CO 3) 2 (OH) 2 - a realization of a one-dimensional distorted
Heisenberg chain is also studied both at ambient and hydrostatic pressure to demonstrate
the proper functioning of the newly built setup "thermal expansion under pressure". ...
