about

One of the hottest topics in low temperature physics during the last two decades has been the revelation of the astonishing properties of crystals of the rare isotope of helium, helium three. This book provides the first complete account of these properties. In it, experimental measurementsare described and the development of their interpretation is discussed. This book provides an introduction to the extensive literature, particularly that published since 1980, for research staff and students in physics and physical chemistry with an interest in current developments in condensed matter.The contents includes quantum crystal, paramagnetism, ferromagnetism, and crystal shapes and defects.

Editorial Reviews

`This book is an important extension of earlier publications on the topic involving extremely low temperatures. This work provides the first complete account of the astonishing properties of the crystals of solid helium three ... will be found to be very useful and suitable for research staffand students in physics and physical chemistry with an interest in current developments in this field.'W Steckelmacher, University of Sussex, Vacuum/volume 46/number 1/1995
