Abstract

In solid3He the internuclear exchange interaction may be interpreted as a molecular field, as in the Weiss theory of magnetism. In an applied magnetic field the magnetic moment precesses about the total magnetic field, to which the molecular field contributes. As Leggett showed for liquid helium in the Fermi liquid region, this leads to a modification of the time evolution of the magnetisation; it is no longer purely diffusive. In solid3He at low polarisation there is conventional spin diffusion; at high polarisations the evolution is in the form of spin waves. We show that the intermediate behaviour may be expressed in terms of a complex diffusion coefficient of constant magnitude, whose phase angle depends on the polarisation.
