New paper on quantum vortex reconnections mediated by particles published in Physical Review B

Reconnection of quantum vortices with particles trapped in them

Particles are used in superfluid to track and visualise the dynamics of quantum vortices. Such particles are trapped by the vortices and we can follow their dynamics. During a vortex reconnection, particles interact with vortices and show a very rich dynamics.
