Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)


Experiments at very low temperatures, in both 3He and 4He, have produced intriguing results which raise challenging questions to fluid mechanicists. The context of this work is quantum turbulence in superfluid 3He-B at very low temperatures such that the viscous normal fluid component can be neglected, and quantum turbulence takes its purest form: a tangle of quantized vortex filaments (see Fig. 1) which move in a fluid without viscosity.
