Some Unusual Characteristics of 3He-B

  • D. D. Osheroff


This paper analyzes three unusual characteristics of 3He-B which have been observed in continuous wave nuclear magnetic resonance studies over the past three years. They include evidence for the existence of textural singularities in 3He-B, unusual spin wave related behavior of B phase samples in highly homogeneous magnetic fields, and power dependent distortions of the B phase absorption lineshape.
