Measurement of the kinetic energy and lattice constant in hcp solid helium at temperatures 0.07-0.4 K.

The single atom kinetic energy kappa of high purity solid hcp 4He has been measured by neutron Compton scattering, at temperatures between 0.07 and 0.4 K and a pressure of 40 bar. Within statistical error of approximately 2% no change in kappa was observed. The values of kappa at approximately 0.07 K were the same in a single crystal and a polycrystalline… (More)
