Abstract

We report heat capacity measurements from our on-going experiments on two-dimensional liquid 3He on superfluid 4He thin films absorbed on Nuclepore. The 3He coverage dependence of the heat capacity for 0.02–0.50 bulk-density layers of 3He with 3.10 bulk-density layers of 4He over the temperature range 40≤T≤200 mK is presented. We find the effective mass of 3He on 3.10 layers of 4He is greater than that on 4.33 layers of 4He, consistent with our previous magnetic susceptibility measurements.
