Organization of Talk

- Phase diagrams: liquid, solid, superfluidity.
- P-R Modes in liquid 4He.
- modes vs pressure

- modes in the solid: are there liquid

like modes in solid He that superflow?

2. Measurements: BEC, n(k)

-bulk liquid 4He, to solidification.

-2D helium

-Solid helium

-Porous media, now and in future.

1908 – 4He first liquified in Leiden by Kamerlingh Onnes

1925 – Specific heat anomaly observed at

Tλ= 2.17 K by Keesom.

Denoted the λ transiton to He II.

1938 – Superfluidity observed in He II by Kaptiza and by Allen and Misener.

1938 – Superfluidity interpreted as manifestation of BEC by London

vS = grad φ (r)

Critical Temperature Tλ = 2.17 K

Superfluidity follows from the nature of the excitations:

- that there are phonon-roton excitations only and no other low energy excitations to which superfluid can decay.

- have a critical velocity and an energy gap (roton gap ).

- Bulk Liquid 4He
- 1. Bose-Einstein Condensation,
- 2. Well-defined phonon-roton modes, at Q > 0.8 Å-1
- 3. Superfluidity
- All co-exist in same p and T range.
- They have same “critical” temperature,
- Tλ = 2.17 K SVP
- Tλ = 1.76 K 25 bar

Bose-Einstein Condensation:

Superfluidity follows from BEC. An extended condensate has a well defined magnitude and phase, <ψ> = √n0eιφ;

vs~ grad φ

Landau Theory:

Superfluidity follows from existence of well defined phonon-roton modes. The P-R mode is the only mode in superfluid 4He. Energy gap

Bose-Einstein Condensation :

Well defined phonon-roton modes follow from BEC. Single particle and P-R modes have the same energy when there is BEC. When there is BEC there are no low energy single particle modes.

Localization of Bose-Einstein Condensation in disorder

Conclusions:

- Observe phonon-roton modes up to T ~ Tλ= 2.17 K
in porous media, i.e. above Tc for superfluidity.

- Well defined phonon-roton modes exist because there is a condensate. Thus have BEC above Tcin porous media, in the temperature range Tc< T <Tλ= 2.17 K
VycorTc = 2.05 K

gelsil (44 Å) Tc = 1.92 K

gelsil (25 Å) Tc = 1.3 K

- At temperatures above Tc
- BEC is localized by disorder

- No superflow

Liquid 4He in Disorder and Boson Localization

Conclusions:

- Below Tc in the superfluid phase, have extended BEC.
- Superfluid – non superfluid liquid transition is associated with an extended to localized BEC cross over.
- Above Tc have only localized BEC (separated islands of BEC).
- Close to and above Tλ have no BEC at all.

Liquid 4He and Solid Helium

Conclusions: BEC

- Neutrons play a unique role in measuring BEC and momentum distributions in liquid and solid helium bulk and in porous media.
- Condensate fraction in the liquid decreases from 7 % at SVP to 3 % in liquid at solidification pressure.
- In the solid, n0≤ 0.3 %. Need to correlate measurement with defects in solid (e.g. amorphous solid).
- Can measure BEC in porous media. Opens direct measurement of BEC phases (e.g. localized BEC, amorphous solid) in porous media, in Bosons in disorder.
