Magnetoelectric distortion of superfluid3He: NMR shifts

  • 26 Accesses

  • 7 Citations

Abstract

The combined effect of electric and magnetic fields on the equilibrium state of B-3He and A-3He is examined through the Ginzburg-Landau formalism. The orientation of the anisotropic superfluid is shown to be sensitive (in B-3He) to both the relative strengths of the fields and the angle between them. Leggett's theory is used to predict dynamic magnetic phenomena. Shifts as well asdiscontinuous jumps in both the CW resonance frequencies and the parallel ringing signal are present for various configurations.
