The specific heat of lithium, cobalt, magnesium, and nickel ferrite has been measured from 1.8°K to 5°K using a calorimetric technique similar to that used by Clement. A "heat switch" was used to cool the samples rather than a helium exchange gas, thereby avoiding helium desorption effects. In all cases the specific heat C could be described by the relation C=αMT32+βT3, where T is the temperature and αM and β are constants. The Debye temperatures were computed from β and were in good agreement with values obtained at liquid nitrogen temperatures. The T32 temperature dependence verifies the spin-wave theory for these compounds although the values of αM were consistently larger than anticipated from observed values of the Curie temperatures. Possible explanations for this are discussed. An extra term proportional to T-2 was observed for cobalt ferrite and this was identified as the nuclear contribution to the specific heat. From the magnitude of this term the magnetic field at the nucleus of the cobalt ion was evaluated and found to be approximately 410 koe.
