Fluctuations above the Superfluid Transition in Liquid 3He

  • V. J. Emery


It is shown that fluctuations above the superfluid transition in liquid 3He depend strongly upon the relative angular momentum ℓ of a Cooper pair but are insensitive to the fourth order term in the Ginsburg-Landau free energy. The effects are shown to be observable in the static magnetization, viscosity and spin diffusion and give a means of determining the value of ℓ.
