An antiferromagnetic system on a 2-D triangular lattice leads to geometric topological frustration. This ideal system has been the subject of theoretical investigations. One experimental realization of this system is the compound Cs2CuCl4. Various magnetization, heat capacity, neutron scattering and NMR studies have identified several magnetic transitions when the magnetic field is applied along one of the three principal axes. The current work investigates the evolution of these phases at intermediate angles as the crystal is rotated relative to the magnetic field. These phases were investigated using a novel rotating calorimeter allowing complete coverage of the experimental parameter space. New magnetic phases only existing at intermediate angles have been found.
