Abstract : Because of the Fermi character of liquid 3He, to polarize this system to values close to one by brute-force we should apply a field H ~ KBTF- µ ~ 200 T far too high to be produced in the laboratory for a sufficiently long time. Castaing and Nozières suggested a very elegant method of overcoming this problem which consists in polarizing solid 3He which has a magnetic susceptibility of the Curie-Weiss type and quickly melt it in a time short compared to T1, the time for the magnetization to relax. The magnetization was observed to stay in the liquid phase with a relaxation time of a few minutes. Using Pomeranchuk cooling, solid polarizations as high as 78 % were recently obtained. Because of antiferromagnetic interactions, larger solid polarizations will need higher magnetic fields. Most of the solid magnetizations can be transferred to the liquid.
