(cryogenics)
A liquid of particles which have Fermi-Dirac statistics; an example is the liquid phase of helium-3, in which the atoms belong to the isotope with mass number 3.

The success of the explicative scope of the ideal Fermi gas model relies on Landau's Fermi liquid theory where fermions interacting repulsively through a short range forces can be described in some degree as an IFG.
At this final stage, what is very relevant, as it is very unconventional, is the evident and remarkable difference in behavior between the main jump along the [GAMMA] [right arrow] S direction and the secondary jump along the S [right arrow] M direction (see Figure 7(b)): the former stays quite sharp (just a bit skewed by the slightly higher temperature) as the Fermi liquid theory requires, the latter instead loses completely its sharpness, much more than what would be reasonable because of the finite value of the temperature as it can be deduced by the comparison with the behavior of the main jump.
