Hendry, P. C. and Lawson, N. S. and McClintock, Peter V. E. (1990) Pressure dependence of vortex tunneling in He II. Physica B: Condensed Matter, 165-16 (1). pp. 757-758. ISSN 0921-4526Full text not available from this repository.
Measurements of the rate nu at which negative ions nucleate charged vortex rings in isotopically pure superfluid He-4 for electric fields E, temperatures T and pressures P within the ranges 10^3 < E < 10^6 V/m, 75 < T < 500 mK, 12 < P < 23 bar show that the energy barrier impeding the tunneling process is strongly dependent on pressure. Minima observed in nu(T) are ascribed to phonon damping.
