    Abstract

    Selected advances in the research on the dynamics of tangles of quantized vortices in superfluid helium with little normal component during the last 50 years are briefly reviewed. The main emphasis is on the experimental techniques of generating and probing homogeneous one-component superfluid turbulence of various energy spectra in superfluid 4He in the low-temperature limit. The most recent experimental progress, modern theoretical concepts and future outlook are summarized. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2009.
