Proposal of holography with second sound in helium II

Abstract

The possibility of holography with second sound waves in He II is investigated theoretically. The radiation pressure of the second sound deforms the liquid-gas interface and the resulting relief could serve as the hologram for the optical reconstruction. The necessary heat current densities are calculated. Inhomogeneities in He II that could be observed by second sound are: stationary heat currents, variations of concentration of the isotope He3, and possibly systems of vortex lines.
