Debye specific heat

Debye specific heat

[də′bī spə‚sif·ik ′hēt]
(solid-state physics)
The specific heat of a solid under the assumption that the energy of the lattice arises entirely from acoustic lattice vibration modes which all have the same sound velocity, and that frequencies are cut off at a maximum such that the total number of modes equals the number of degrees of freedom of the solid.

2, and it can be seen that the specific heat was apparently changing linearly with temperature, following the T3/2 variation, which could be attributed nearly to Debye specific heat of solids (T3-variation).
In Ba-exchanged Type-A zeolite samples, the specific heat was changing linearly with temperature, following approximately the (T3/2- variation), which could be attributed nearly to Debye specific heat of solids (T3-variation).
