# Liquid Structure Factor Measurements on the Quantum Liquids

Chapter

## Abstract

We have completed an analysis of data obtained from recent experiments in which Cu where

*Kα*(1.54 Å) X rays were scattered from liquid^{3}He. The liquid structure factor*S*was determinedt† as a function of momentum transfer*k*in two completely independent scattering experiments: (1)*T=*0.36°K, 0.133 <*k*< 1.125 Å^{−1}and (2) T = 0.41°K, 0.15 <*k*< 2.1 Å^{−1}. As usual (see, e.g., Hallock^{2}), the structure factor was determined from the basic expression$$=\frac{I{{\rho }_{G}}{{T}_{G}}}{{{I}_{G\rho }}T}\left( \frac{{{\xi }_{e}}+{{\xi }_{i}}}{{{\sigma }_{e}}} \right)-\frac{{{\sigma }_{i}}}{{{\sigma }_{e}}}$$

(1)

*I*is the observed intensity,*ρ*is the number density,*T*is the transmission factor, and*σ*and ξ are scattering factors for the liquid helium and neon (normalization gas*G*), respectively.## Keywords

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
