Fisher, Shaun N. and Hale, A. J. and Guénault, Anthony M. and Pickett, George R. (2001) Generation and detection of quantum turbulence in Superfluid He-3-B. Physical Review Letters, 86 (2). pp. 244-247. ISSN 1079-7114Full text not available from this repository.
We describe the first direct observations of turbulence in super-fluid He-3-B. The turbulence is generated by a vibrating-wire resonator driven at velocities exceeding the pair-breaking critical velocity. It is detected by the resulting decrease in the thermal damping on a neighboring "detector" vibrating-wire resonator. The superfluid flow field associated with the turbulence Andreev reflects thermal quasiparticle excitations, effectively screening the detector wire, resulting in a decrease in the thermal damping.
