Observation of a New Sound-Attenuation Peak in Superfluid He3-B Academic Article uri icon


  • Results of zero-sound attenuation measurements in He3-B, at frequencies up to 60 MHz and pressures between 0 and 20 bars, are reported. At frequencies of 30 MHz and above, a new attenuation feature is observed which bears the signature of a collective mode of the superfluid. 1980 The American Physical Society.
