Vacancy bandwidth in BCC 3He as determined by specific heat
The specific heat data of Greywall are analyzed and shown to imply a vacancy band of nonzero width. Certain limits on the density of the vacancy states are derived and a fit to the data is presented. Disagreement between the vacancy density measurements of Heald and Simmons and the specific heat data are confirmed.
