Motion of Ions in Normal and Superfluid 3He
We discuss the drag force on an ion in low temperature 3He in the normal state and in the superfluid state. We give numerical results for the nonlinear high velocity regime of the mobility in the superfluid B phase in the elastic scattering approximation.

A full treatment of the T-matrix removes this singularity as shown by the above mentioned authors.Google Scholar
