Nuclear Magnetic Susceptibility of Solid He3 Cooled by Compression from the Liquid Phase Academic Article uri icon


  • Using the cooling power of the adiabatic solidification of He3, we have reached temperatures near 2 mK and have measured the temperature dependence of the susceptibility of solid He3 down to 6 mK. The magnetic ordering is antiferromagnetic, with a Weiss =3.00.3 mK corresponding to a Nel temperature of 2.1 mK for bcc He3 at 34 atm. 1969 The American Physical Society.
