Liquid Helium Drop Levitation Experiment

A planned study of the evolution of the quantized vortex tangle in a levitated liquid helium droplet.

The objectives of this project include a thorough investigation of how the appearance of vortices can affect the stability of a rotating superfluid drop and an in-depth study of the evolution of a vortex tangle in a wall-free environment. This study will improve our understanding of superfluid drop morphology and will advance our knowledge of the turbulence dissipation mechanism in pure superfluid.
