Brazhnikov, M. Yu and Kolmakov, G. V. and Levchenko, A. A. and Mezhov-Deglin, L. and McClintock, Peter V. E. (2005) Formation and decay of capillary turbulence on the charged surface of liquid hydrogen. Journal of Low Temperature Physics, 139 (5-6). pp. 523-530. ISSN 0022-2291
We study the formation and the free decay of capillary turbulence on the charged surface of liquid hydrogen on the switching on, and off, of a narrow-band driving force. It is observed that the decay begins from the high frequency spectral domain of the surface oscillations and is of a quasi-adiabatic character. The characteristic relaxation time of the whole turbulent cascade is close to the viscous damping time for capillary waves of frequency equal to the driving frequency.
