Abstract

We study the formation and the free decay of capillary turbulence on the charged surface of liquid hydrogen on the switching on, and off, of a narrow-band driving force. It is observed that the decay begins from the high frequency spectral domain of the surface oscillations and is of a quasi-adiabatic character. The characteristic relaxation time of the whole turbulent cascade is close to the viscous damping time for capillary waves of frequency equal to the driving frequency.
