Turbulent Superfluid Profiles in a Counterflow Channel

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Luca Galantucci, Professor Carlo Barenghi, Dr Michele Sciacca



We have developed a two-dimensional model of quantised vortices in helium II moving under the influence of applied normal fluid and superfluid in a counterflow channel. We predict superfluid and vortex-line density profiles which could be experimentally tested using recently developed visualization techniques.
