Neutron Diffraction from the Second Layer of 4He on Graphite

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearch


Neutron diffraction has been used to study the second atomic layer of **4He adsorbed on graphite. As the **4He-coverage exceeds the first layer, the second initially forms a fluid phase. But when there is enough **4He in the third layer to compress the second, this layer solidifies. The structure of the second layer as well as the distances between layers are discussed.
