Abstract

We suggest a scheme of the Superfluid Helium Quantum Interference Device (SHeQUID) with a transformer of the angular momentum stream, whose working medium is superfluid liquid He4. A scheme is provided for measuring the Lense-Thirring effect under laboratory conditions as well as other effects related to super slow rotations.
