Abstract

A growing recent interest in the properties of adsorbed helium(1-8) has led us to re-examine an unsolved problem in earlier work. Our measurements indicate that a phase transition corresponding to the lambda transition in bulk He4 occurs in the adsorbed film at temperatures above Tλ for pressures below the bulk vapor pressure (hereafter Po).
