Collisionless Plasma in Superfluid Liquid Helium

Lecture #1: "Observation of Distributed Plasma in Super-fluid Liquid Helium"
(Special time 10:30 AM)

It is quite easy to produce a filamentary lightning-type discharge plasma in any liquid, whereas distributed plasma in liquid may be observed only in superfluid liquid helium.

Lecture #2  "Decaying Plasma in Ultra-cold Gas and Super-fluid Liquid Helium"

Transient plasmas in cryogenic helium gas below 2.17 degree Kelvin and in super-fluid liquid helium (L He II) are studied experimentally.
