Abstract: We use optical images of a superfluid consisting of a weakly interacting Bose–Einstein condensate
of sodium atoms to investigate the structure of quantized three-dimensional vortex filaments. We find that
the measured optical contrast and the width of the vortex core quantitatively agree with the predictions of the
Gross–Pitaevskii equation.

More Information: We dedicate this paper to L.P. Pitaevskii in celebration of his 85th birthday. No words can express our gratitude for the times spent working alongside him and, of course, for his pioneering contributions to physics itself.
