Measurements of the 16-Hz susceptibility of a powdered Na3[Ce(C7H3NO4)3] · 15H2O (CDP) sample, in the shape of a right-circular cylinder with diameter equal to height, have been made as a function of the Johnson noise temperature TJ of a resistor in the range 2 to 20 mK. Pure liquid 3He was used for thermal contact between the CDP and the noise thermometer in a demagnetization cell. The results are compared with similar data for cerium magnesium nitrate (CMN). CDP appears, like CMN, to have an anomalously low thermal resistance to pure liquid 3He.
