Specific-Heat Measurements on Solid 3He

  • D. S. Greywall

Abstract

The specific heat of bcc 3He has been measured at five molar volumes between 21.5 and 24.5 cm3 and for temperatures between 50 mK and the melting curve. The data below 0.5K show no evidence of the large anomalous contribution to the specific heat which has been observed in all of the previous specific heat measurements on 3He, and thus indicate that this long-standing anomaly is not due to an intrinsic property of this quantum solid.
