Interpretation of quasiparticle scattering measurements in $^3$He-B: a three dimensional numerical analysis

Thursday 6th December 2012 - 14:55 to 15:10
INI Seminar Room 1
Session Title: 
Quantized flux tubes and vortices
Session Chair: 
Robert Kerr
Present research is concerned with numerical modelling of Andreev scattering technique used for detection of quantized vortices in $^3$He-B. The results of numerical analysis of Andreev reflection by three-dimensional turbulent structures are reported. We analyse the Andreev scattering by a dense vortex tangle and calculate the spectral characteristics of the retroreflected beam of thermal excitations. The obtained results are in agreement with experimental observations.
