As a practical matter, a pumped bath of liquid helium 4 can be used to cool down to about 1 Kelvin. A pumped bath of liquid helium 3 can be used to cool down to about Kelvin. Superfluid Helium. For helium 4, crogenicists distinguish two liquid forms: helium I and helium II. Helium I is the warmer form; helium II is the colder. Liquid 4He and 3He are the purest Bose and Fermi liquids currently found in nature. Understanding their dynamics is fundamental to understanding more complex matter. This book provides an introduction to the subject and develops the theory of zero sound, phonons, rotons, spin and single particle excitations in quantum solids and fluids. Similarities between quantum solids and fluids are drawn.

Properties. Helium-4 is unique in having two liquid forms. The normal liquid form is called helium I and exists at temperatures from its boiling point of K (− °C) down to about K (− °C). Below K, thermal conductivity of helium-4 becomes more than 1, times greater than that of liquid form is called helium II to distinguish it from normal liquid helium. J.

One liter of liquid helium expands to liters of helium gas under normal or also called standard conditions (1 bar, room temperature), when going through the boiling point of K. The lambda point, the point where liquid helium gets superfluid, is at K. Jeremy Sherr has been researching and writing about the Noble gases since and in his own words "Helium is the gateway to the seven noble gases. The noble gases are the key to .

  This book covers main properties of the excitation spectrum in superfluid 4 He and the thermodynamics determined by the spectrum. It deals with hydrodynamics and describes that quantitative results should be insignificantly modified with processes of phonon decay taken into account.

Introduction Kammerlingh Onnes discovered in that liquid helium never solidified under its own vapor pressure. The interaction between the helium atoms is very weak because helium is an inert gas. The liquid phase is very weakly bound, and the normal boiling point is very low (° K).
