Experimental Test of a New Mechanism of Dissipation in Accelerated Superfluid Film FlowPhysics Letters A (1974)
AbstractWe have measured the damping, α, and the frequency, ω, of superfluid film oscillations under quasi-isothermal conditions for a variety of geometries. Experimental values for α are found to be in quantitative agreement with the Robinson theory as applied to film flow. This suggests that the damping mechanism proposed recently by Calvani, Greulich and Maraviglia does not provide a major contribution to the dissipation we observe.
