We report mainly the heat capacity and Mossbauer study of self-flux grown FeTe single crystal, which is a ground state compound of the Fe chalcogenides superconducting series i.e. FeTe1-x (Se/S) (x) The as grown FeTe single crystal is large enough to the tune of a few centimetres and the same crystallizes in tetragonal structure having space group of P4/nmm. FeTe shows the structural/magnetic phase transition at 70 K in both magnetic and resistivity measurements. Heat capacity measurement also confirms the coupled structural/magnetic transition at the same temperature. The Debye model fitting of low temperature (below 70 K) heat capacity exhibited Debye temperature (oee integral (D) ) to be 324 K. Mossbauer spectra are performed at 300 and 5 K. The 300-K spectra showed two paramagnetic doublets and the 5-K spectra exhibited hyperfine magnetic sextet with an average hyperfine field of 10.6 Tesla matching with the results of Yoshikazu Mizuguchi et al.
