Nucleation of He3-B from the a phase: A cosmic-ray effect?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It is proposed that the nucleation of the B phase of liquid He3 from the metastable A phase is a consequence of the passage of a cosmic ray through the cell and the resultant anomaly in the effective temperature distribution in the liquid.
