Phase Transition Studies of Confined Helium

  • Chan, Moses Hung-Wai (PI)

Project: Research project

Project Details


Further work is proposed to study the effect of disorder and reduced dimensionality on phase transitions in 4He. Liquid helium confined by porous media and as a thin film on a graphite surface will be studied at 10mK, 300mK, 2K and 4K using heat- capacity, third-sound, vapor-pressure-isotherm and light- scattering techniques.
