Embedded in a flux of dehydrated B2O3, melts of pure germanium were undercooled by repeated melting and solidification of the specimens within a differential scanning calorimeter facility. The highest undercooling obtained in this way was 190 K. The specific heat of the undercooled melt was measured by calorimetric diagnostics within the facility, and showed a linear dependence on temperature. The thermodynamic properties of germanium, such as the difference of Gibbs free energy, the difference of entropy, and the difference of enthalpy between the undercooled melt and the solid state, were derived from the measured specific heat.
