Abstract

Several aspects of high field heat capacity observed in different types of singlet ground state system are discussed. The ground state energy gap and its magnetic field dependence are also studied in the Haldane gap compounds NENP, NINO and TMNIN. The origin of the observed minimum gap in applied magnetic field is discussed. In the spin-Peierls compound CuGeO3, the energy gap of the Cu2+ spin system in the dimerized phase and the gapless state in the high-field magnetic phase are confirmed.
