Hickson, A. and McClintock, Peter V. E. (1971) Injection of charge into liquid helium by field-emission and field-ionisation. In: Proceedings of the Twelfth International Conference on Low Temperature Physics. Academic Press of Japan and/or Keigaku Publishing Co., Tokyo, pp. 95-97.Full text not available from this repository.
We report measurements of field-emission/ionisation currents from sharp tungsten points held between ± 5kV into liquid helium in the range 0.3-4.2 K; and direct observation of a glowing microscopic bubble of vapour enveloping the emitting tip. We discuss the complex temperature dependence of the current in terms of a spacecharge trapped on vorticity.
