Abstract

We theoretically investigate the specific heat at constant volume CV and strong-coupling effects in a Fermi gas with p-wave interaction. In a 40K Fermi gas, a uniaxial anisotropy of a p-wave interaction associated with a p-wave Feshbach resonance is expected as a result of the split of the p-wave Feshbach resonance by a dipole interaction. Including this, as well as pairing fluctuations, we show that CV is significantly affected by this anisotropy in the strong-coupling regime. We also discuss the physical origin of this effect. Our results would contribute to the further understanding of an ultracold p-wave Fermi gas.
