Nonlinear deformation of the electron-charged surface of liquid He4

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Deformations of the charged surface of liquid He4 are studied by optical means. Near the dimple-crystal-formation point we observe saturation effects and a stripe structure exhibiting hysteresis. We discuss imperfect lattices and dimple glasses and compare data with existing theories of nonlinear equilibrium.
