Thermal transport and the Kosterlitz-Thouless transition in 4He films Academic Article uri icon


  • We report preliminary studies of thermally driven flow in helium films near the superfluid transition. Experiments using a modified torsional oscillator allow simultaneous measurements of the thermal conductance, superfluid mass and vortex dissipation of the film. Data are analyzed in terms of the Kosterlitz-Thouless theory. 1981.
