Fig. 7 and Fig. 8 represent the variation of the heat capacity, CV(T), and volume expansion coefficient, α(T) as a function of temperature, respectively. These two quantities show a sharp increase up to ~400K, and at high temperature CV is close to a constant, which is the so-called Dulong-Petit limit .
