Sammanfattning

He II or superfluid helium, which already plays an important role in the cooling of superconducting magnets and superconducting radiofrequency cavities, has now also inspired music. Composer Michael Edward Edgerton, a professor at Lund University’s Malmo Academy of Music in Sweden has written an innovative piece, “Der Rufer,” for a percussion quartet based on phenomena found in He II including: anisotropy, isotropy, quantum leap (bifurcation), mutual friction, superfluid turbulence, quantized vortices and second sound.
