Hydromagnetic Effects in Superfluid 3He

  • Alexander L. Fetter


A Ginzburg-Landau expansion is used to study a uniformly-flowing p-wave Fermi superfluid in a static magnetic field near TC. The three-dimensional state undergoes strong hydromagnetic suppression, affecting the critical current, the dipole energy, and the overall phase diagram.
