Incommensurate systems as model compounds for disorder revealing low-temperature glasslike behavior.

Abstract

We show that the specific heat of incommensurately modulated crystals with broken translational periodicity presents similar features at low temperatures to those of amorphous and glass materials. Here we demonstrate that the excess to the constant C_{p}(T)/T^{3} law (or Debye limit) is made up of an upturn below 1 K and of a broad bump at T≈10 K that… (More)
