Hendry, P. C. and Lawson, N. S. and Lee, R. A. M. and McClintock, Peter V. E. and Williams, C. D. H. (1995) Cosmological experiments in liquid He-4 - problems and prospects. In: Formation and Interactions of Topological Defects. Plenum, New York, pp. 379-387. ISBN 0-306-45116-6Full text not available from this repository.
A recent experiment, in which the production of cosmic strings in the early universe is modelled by the creation of quantised vortices in a fast expansion of liquid 4He through the lambda (superfluid) transition, is reviewed. Possible ways of redesigning the experiment to reduce extraneous vortex creation, and to enhance the signal-to-noise ratio at early times after the expansion, are discussed.
