α-RuCl3 currently is the best known candidate material for realizing Kitaev physics. Previous experiments on the longitudinal thermal conductivity revealed a strong coupling of he magnetic and phononic subsystems which results in a strongly magnetic field dependent thermal conductivity due to the field-induced opening of a gap [1]. Furthermore, a sizeable thermal Hall effect has been observed which triggered the search for signatures of fractionalized thermal transport due to topological edge modes near an in-plane field value of 8 T where long-range magnetic order is suppressed but the spin gap is still small [2]. Here we focus on low-temperature and high-field (up to 30 T) studies of the thermal transport which suggest the persistence of low-energy field-dependent modes up to the highest field studied at 30 T.
