Flow-rate transitions in the helium-II film

  • R. F. Harris-Lowe
  • R. R. Turkington


Film flow rates in liquid helium II have been measured with a resolution which far surpasses that of any previous results, and we are able to present, for the first time, the detailed nature of flow-rate transitions. These results have a profound effect upon the interpretation of film-flow phenomena.
