Spin relaxation in normal liquid3He:T1 in the Fermi liquid (T≪TF) regime

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The low-temperature (T≪TF) spin relaxation time T1 in normal liquid3He is calculated. First an expression for T1 is obtained using the Landau kinetic equation, which is in terms of the perturbations of the scattering amplitudes due to nuclear dipole-dipole interactions. These perturbations are obtained using the induced interaction model, which explicitly includes the effects of many-body correlations arising from the Pauli principle. The results are in good agreement with experiment, as well as with previous calculations.
