Abstract

In a recent communication from the Low Temperature Laboratory of the Helsinki University of Technology, Ahonen, Haikala, Krusius and Lounasmaa describe their transverse nuclear magnetic resonance experiments on superfluid 3He over a wide range of pressures and temperatures down to 0.7 mK (Phys. Rev. Left., 33, 1595; 1974). Their data seem to be consistent with the suggestion by Brinkman, Smith, Osheroff and Blount (Phys. Rev. Lett., 33, 624; 1974) that the B phase of the superfluid is anisotropic and may be expected to exhibit textures somewhat analagous to those of liquid crystals.
