The transport properties of3He-4He mixtures near the lambda line—A short review and outlook

  • H. Meyer
Article

Abstract

A short review is given on the present status of our knowledge on several transport properties, both in the normal and the superfluid phase in the vicinity of the superfluid transition. The concentration range extends from very dilute mixturesX (3He) ≈ 10−7 to those withXX t = 0.67, whereX t is the concentration at the tricritical point. The influence of the earth's gravity field on these properties is discussed. It occurs via the concentration susceptibility and its temperature spread increases withX. The ongoing program at Duke University on the shear viscosity is briefly described.
