Abstract

We report the preliminary results of an experiment to measure the Landau critical velocity in He II. Our measurements, for pressures P in the range 19 < P < 25 bar, agree to better than 1% with values of vL calculated from accepted values of the Landau parameters, but lie systematically above them.
