Abstract

We report Hall sensor measurements of the magnetic relaxation of Mn12-acetate as a function of magnetic field applied along the easy axis of magnetization. Data taken at a series of closely spaced temperatures between 0.24 and 1.9 K provide new clues for understanding the physics of quantum tunneling of magnetization in Mn12-acetate.
