(2005) Decay of the turbulent cascade of capillary waves on the charged surface of liquid hyrdrogen. Journal of Low Temperature Physics, 138 (3-4). pp. 519-524. ISSN 0022-2291
We study the free decay of capillary turbulence on the charged surface of liquid hydrogen. We find that the decay begins from the high frequency spectral domains 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.
