In science:

Heat capacity and transport data were collected with a Quantum Design Physical Properties Measurement System (PPMS) in magnetic fields up to 70 kOe.
Investigation of the Spin Density Wave in NaxCoO2
The heat capacity (C) measurements were carried out by a two-tau relaxation method using both a standard 4He and a 3He insert. A background signal (platform and Apiezon N grease) was recorded versus temperature for each run.
Investigation of the Spin Density Wave in NaxCoO2
In order to rule out effects from CoO we have measured the heat capacity of a polycrystalline sample uniaxially pressed into the form of a thin (3 × 3 × 1.5 mm3 ) pellet ; a clear feature is seen in the data at TN =289 K.

Nanoscale Heat Transfer: from Computation to Experiment
After the measurement, however, the system is found to be in one of the states “up along y” or “down along y”. This new one-bit information was spontaneously created in the measurement, while the old information is irrecoverably erased due to the limitation of one bit “storage capacity” in the electron spin.

By item 4 above, the capacity resulting from this measure of reliability is at least as great as that which results when entanglement fidelity is used as the measure of reliability.
Information transmission through a noisy quantum channel
The lesson to be learnt from this discussion is that there are many different measures which may be used to quantify how reliably quantum states are transmitted, and different measures may result in different capacities.
Information transmission through a noisy quantum channel
Each of these is unitary, up to a constant multiplying factor, so conditioned on knowing the measurement result m, the corresponding channel capacity Cm is perfect.
