Textural transitions in a rotating slab of 3He-A

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The operation of a torsional oscillator for detection of flow-driven textural transitions in 3He- A is described. The detection technique, tracking the shift of the resonant frequency of the torsional oscillator, allows us to observe textural changes and the presence of vortices in zero magnetic field. It relies on the anisotropic superfluid density of 3 He-A and its change dae to reorientation of the Î-texture caused by counter flow. © 2004 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
