John Lewis Lecture Series organised jointly by HMI & DIAS.
With generous donation from Raymond Russell and Corvil Networks
SUPERFLUID LIQUID HELIUM exhibits quantum mechanical behaviour on alaboratory scale; like the energy levels of an atom, the angularmomentum of vortices in a superfluid is quantized. This gives turbulencein liquid helium some strange particle-like behaviour and this quantizedturbulence is very interesting, not least as a window into classicalturbulence itself.
