  Abstract We study the entropy jump associated with the first-order vortex melting transition (FOT) in Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ crystals by means of Hall probe magnetometry. The samples present a diluted distribution of columnar defects (CD) introduced by irradiation with Xe ions. The FOT is detected in ac transmittivity measurements as a paramagnetic peak, the height of which is proportional to the enthalpy difference entailed by the transition. By applying the Clausius-Clapeyron relation, we quantify the evolution of the entropy jump Δs as a function of the FOT temperature, TFOT, in both pristine crystals and crystals with CD. On increasing the density of CD, Δs decreases monotonically with respect to values found in pristine samples. The Δs versus TFOT dependence in the case of pristine samples follows reasonably well the theoretical prediction of dominant electromagnetic coupling for a model neglecting the effect of disorder. The data for samples with a diluted distribution of CD are not properly described by such a theoretical model.
