Turbulent and Laminar Drag of Superfluid Helium on an Oscillating Microsphere

Jäger, J. ; Schuderer, B. ; Schoepe, Wilfried


A magnetic sphere (radius 100 μm), levitating inside a superconducting niobium capacitor, is immersed into superfluid helium. Vertical oscillations of the sphere can be excited and detected. At resonance we measure the velocity amplitude as a function of the driving force between 0.35 and 2.2 K. In the linear regime (laminar flow) the drag is given by Stokes' solution above 1.1 K and by ballistic ...
