A comment on the possible Néel temperature of solid3He

  • E. D. Adams
  • L. H. Nosanow


A calculation of the effect of the conjectured three-body exchange on the possible Néel temperature of solid3He is made. A value of 2.24 mK is obtained fromP v (T) data, whereas susceptibility data indicate 2.9 mK. These calculations indicate that three-body exchange may lead to the occurrence of the transition above 2.0 mK, the previously expected value.
