Macroscopic parity nonconservation due to neutral currents?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The parity-nonconserving electron-nucleon interaction induced by neutral currents should give rise to a (thermodynamically stable) electric-dipole-moment density directed along the characteristic rotation axis ω^ of superfluid He3-B; if observed, this would constitute the first example of parity nonconservation on a macroscopic scale. Although the magnitude of the effect depends critically on a poorly known chemical parameter, it quite probably lies within the experimentally detectable range.
