Analog of the Aharonov-Bohm effect in superfluid He3-A
An analogy is found between the dynamics of the collective clapping mode near a vortex with a half-integer number of circulation quanta (n — 1/2) in He?~A and the dynamics of an electron outside a cylindrical tube with the magnetic flux. Because of the Aharonov-Bohm effect, the scattering of the clapping mode by vortices with η — 1/2 should be substantially greater than the scattering by vortices with η — 1 or 2. This difference might be exploited to identify vortices.
