**Glass and possible non supersolid origin of TO anomaly**• Thermodynamic considerations • Counting number of states across a phase transition. • Counting frozen-in states of a glass. • 2. Torsional oscillator considerations • Causality links dissipation and period. • How to get a peak in dissipation and drop in period? • 3. Outlines of the effects of disorder (3He) on “supersolid” E. Abrahams (Rutgers) M. Graf, Z. Nussinov, S. Trugman, AVB (Los Alamos),**Conclusion**• Disorder and Glassiness (due to dislocations?) are the key to TO and solid He 4 anomalies seen. • We developed a glass theory that • A) allows to FIT the TO anomalies • B) takes into account the thermodynamic features seen so far. • Anomalous state, often called “Supersolid” state can benefit from lighter atoms if they attract vacancies. • Effect of 3He is not a benign add on. It is HUGE, organic and highly unexpected for a phase fluctuation driven superstate.**experiments**• TO: Chan et al., Reppy et al, Shirahama et al, Kubota et al • Specific heat experiments • Effects of 3He. • .No direct evidence of superflow, or any flow (Beamish).

Hypothesis: normal glass (due to dislocations?) responsible • for most of the features • Torsional oscillator considerations • Causality links dissipation and period. • How to get a peak in dissipation and drop in period? • 3. Counting number of states across a phase transition. • Counting frozen-in states of a glass. • 4. Enormous effect of 3He on glass state.**TO anomaly, not supersolid**Oscillation period Is all that is observed Change in damping (T) also causes change in period . Does not require NCRI to explain the effect. 4He Glass: freezout below 100mK Change in I(T) leads to NCRI**Simple table top analogy**Spinning an egg: apply external torque (spin) from time and then let go Hard boiled egg (more solid like- analogue of proposed “glass” at low T): fast rotation, low dissipation Soft boiled egg (more liquid like- analogue of system far above the glass transition temperature): low rotational frequency, high dissipation If the egg were an ideal rigid solid and no spurious effects were present: final angular rotation speed On its own, the change in rotational speed here can also be interpreted in terms of an effective missing moment of inertia in the hard boiled egg relative to that of the soft boiled egg.**The torsional oscillator**Q: What is a torsional oscillator? A: Oscillator = coupled system of pressure cell + something. Q: What does torsional oscillator experiment report? A: Linear response function of coupled system. Rittner and Reppy, PRL 2006. Did you notice BeCu? See Todoshchenko’s pressure gauge glitch, cond-mat/0703743! Nussinov et al., cond-mat/0610743**General idea**Balatsky et al., PRB 75, 094201 (2007) Nussinov et al., cond-mat/0610743 Any transition of a liquid-like component into a glass (whether classical or an exotic quantum “superglass”) will lead to such an angular response function. We argued it could be dislocation induced. In any system, the real and imaginary parts of the poles of the angular response function dictate the period and dissipation. The divergent equilibration time in the glass will lead to a larger real part of the poles of and thus a faster rotation of the oscillator. This occurs regardless of any possible tiny supersolid fraction ( see our bounds from the specific heat measurements). Possible connection to vortex and/or glass( Anderson, Huse, Philips, et al).**Simplifying limiting form (activated dynamics with no**distribution of relaxation times) To avoid the use of too many parameters in any fit, we focus on the simplest- and unphysical- limit of a real glass: that of vanishing transition temperature (activated dynamics) with no distribution of relaxation times.**Period and dissipation for simplistic model: activated**dynamics Period: Dissipation: Resonant oscillator frequency in low temperature limit**Deviations from undistributed activated dynamics:the real**glass The deviation from the semi-circle ( =1) show There is a substantial distribution of relaxation times As in a real glass. Initial analysis of new data shows That the To is of the order of 100mK.**Dissipation and period of torsional oscillator**Single mode glass model for pressure cell & glass system. The deviation from the semi-circle ( =1) show There is a substantial distribution of relaxation times As in a real glass. Initial analysis of new data shows That the To is of the order of 100mK.

Balatsky et al., PRB 75, 094201 (2007)**Excess specific heat (30 ppm)**• System: 4He w/30 ppm 3He. • Debye: cubic term at high temperatures, 0.15 K < T < 0.6 K = D/50. • Glass + Debye: linear + cubic term at low temperatures, T < 0.15 K. Clark and Chan, JLTP 138, 853 (2005) Balatsky et al., PRB 75, 094201 (2007)**Excess specific heat (760 ppm)**• System: 4He w/760 ppm 3He. • Linear + cubic term in C at lowest temperatures! • Linear term increases with 3He concentration. Clark and Chan, JLTP 138, 853 (2005) Balatsky et al., PRB 75, 094201 (2007)**Excess entropy (30 ppm)?**BEC: DS = 5 R = 41.6 J/(K mol) at T=Tc~0.16 K**Excess entropy (760 ppm)?**BEC: DS = 5 R = 41.6 J/(K mol) at T=Tc~0.16 K.**Boson peak in glasses**We expect similar fit to work For 4He solids.**Effects of 3He impurities on SS**• 3He requires more “elbow” space in 4He matrix for zero point motion • It is an attractive site for vacancies • Increases Tc in GL?! • Illustrated in WF approach**Zero point motion amplitude**Pushes 4He aside Less of n_b = more of n_v Is local 3He density is an attractive region for vacancy Take 3He has larger zero point motion amplitude**Potential that is repulsive for bosons is attractive for**vacancies**Not a random mass term**HUGE effect! dTc ~ 300 mk 10 ppm Anti Anderson theorem Contrast to SC case and Anderson Theorem ( no Tc enhancement)**Numbers**• Stiffness goes down but by a more modest amount**Comparison with experiments**• Tc will go up but not as much as what is measured by Chan et al. Effect of 3He is to enormoulsy increase TO feature, much more then “dirt” add on to specific heat. • Problem for any phase fluctuation picture: Tc is set by s. Tc goes up, s goes down with 3He. HUGE effect! dTc ~ 300 mk 10 ppm**Compare to effect of disorderin conventional SC**Huge slope And opposite sign! 3He has highly nontrivial effect on SS state. Not a simple add on!**TEST**YOUR NCRI**What is working and where are problems for a normal glass?**• working: • fits to specific heat • Fits to torsional oscillator ( the only ones so far) • Annealing effect in some samples. • No mass superflow in Beamish expts. • Huge sensitivity to 3He effects. • Not working(?) • Blocking annulus: glass state in blocked and non blocked expts are different, need better characterization. Remains to be seen how reproducible it is and if blocking changes stiffness dramatically for the same sample quality. • “NCRIF” as a function of rim velocity. Demonstrated to be not a general fact(new Chan data, Reppy data).**Conclusion**• Disorder and Glassiness (due to dislocations?) are the key to TO and solid He 4 anomalies seen. • We developed a glass theory that • A) allows to FIT the TO anomalies • B) takes into account the thermodynamic features seen so far. • Anomalous state, often called “Supersolid” state can benefit from lighter atoms if they attract vacancies. • Effect of 3He is not a benign add on. It is HUGE, organic and highly unexpected for a phase fluctuation driven superstate.
