Interaction of a vortex in a circularly polarized superfluid component of a 2d complex vector field with the phase boundary between superfluid phases with opposite signs of polarization leads to a resonant excitation of a "capillary" wave on the boundary. This leads to energy losses by the vortex-image pair that has to cause its eventual annihilation.
