Abstract:
The heat capacity of 3He adsorbed on Grafoil (exfoilated graphite) preplated with four layers of 4He was measured between 1 and 50mK. The heat capacity was found to be linear up to 4OmK. At 3He surface densities below 4nm-2 two dimensional Fermi liquid behaviour was found and values of the hydrodynamic effective mass and Landau parameter Ff inferred. Subsequent steps in the heat capacity as a function of coverage were taken as evidence of independent 2D Fermi fluids. A low field DC SQUID pulsed NMR spectrometer was developed for future studies of magnetic order in 2D solid 3He films at ultralow temperatures
