Abstract

A drastic reduction in effective thermal conductivity of a column of He II has been observed when a field emission current source, immersed in the liquid, is switched on. This result can be interpreted in terms of vorticity generated near the emitter and appears to shed light upon the complex current - temperature characteristics of field-emission in He II.
