Changing his orientation, he then focused on the thermodynamics of chemical reactions at very low temperature, showing in 1906 that specific heats and dilation coefficients approach zero when the temperature approaches the absolute zero. This led him to formulate the third principle of thermodynamics, according to which it is impossible to reach absolute zero temperature. It is worth mentioning that in 1997 the Nobel Prize of Physics rewarded research that had led to reaching a temperature of about three billionths of a degree Kelvin!
