The Decay of Turbulence in Superfluid ³He-B

William Vinen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A brief summary of our understanding of homogeneous turbulence in a classical fluid and in superfluid He-4 is followed by our first thoughts on the extension of the relevant theoretical ideas to turbulence in superfluid He-3-B, taking as a model of this system a hypothetical BCS superfluid with s-state pairing and parameters appropriate to the real system. Important and fundamental differences can be expected between superfluid turbulence in the two isotopes, which could be explored with appropriate experiments.
