Excitations in Normal Liquid 3He

  • H. R. Glyde

A simple RPA model employing the Landau quasi-particle-quasihole interaction is used to describe the density and spin-density excitations observed in recent neutron scattering measurements on normal liquid 3He. The model provides a good description of the excitations observed at T = 0.015 K and suggests that the scattering intensity may be significantly temperature dependent.
