Abstract : Measurements were made of the specific heats of U(235) and U(238) metals below 0.75K. Results show a large T(-2) contribution to the specific heat of U(235), whereas the corresponding term in the U(238) data is almost negligible. This indicates the presence of a large hyperfine interaction in U(235).
