Abstract:A comparison is made between the results of low-frequency relaxation measurements on potassium chromium alum placed in liquid helium and in vacuum, respectively. It is found that only a part of the lattice oscillations is involved in the spin-lattice relaxation process. The spin-lattice relaxation time was found after correcting the time constants of the vacuum measurements by experimental shortening factors. The differences between the spin-lattice relaxation time and the time constants from the liquid-helium measurements can be explained for the greater part by the finite thermal conductivity of the liquid helium.
