- n. A fluid, such as a liquid form of helium, exhibiting a frictionless flow at temperatures close to absolute zero.
“As a consequence the Ginzburg-Landau order parameter has here not only two – as in the superconductors – but eighteen components and the superfluid is anisotropic; it can have different properties in different directions.”
“This is the first demonstration of whistling in superfluid helium-4.”
“The pair formation that occurs in superfluid 3He differs from that which occurs between electrons in a superconductor”
“In addition, John Reppy and his students conducted extensive investigations of persistent currents in superfluid”
“Kosterlitz-Thouless transition in superfluid 4He films.”
“Leggett used to understand the frequency shifts in superfluid”
“When a superfluid is set in rotation and the velocity of rotation exceeds a critical value, microscopic vortices appear.”
“Liquid helium can become superfluid, that is, its viscosity vanishes at low temperatures.”
“Below the critical temperature, the pairs form everywhere in a material, and can then act in concert as a "superfluid" to carry electric current through it without resistance.”
“It didn't boil, either; helium II is a "superfluid," so what evaporation there was had to take place evenly, all over the surface.”
