Abstract

IN our previous communications1 on the ‘transfer’ of liquid helium II by a surface film above the liquid level, we stressed the similarity of this ‘transfer’ with the so-called transport phenomena in the free liquid, and suggested that the latter might be due to a process similar to the transfer above the liquid level. Later experiments on the formation of this film2 seemed further to strengthen the conception that there existed a similar surface transport below the liquid level, and we have recently made two observations which seem to corroborate this hypothesis:
