Rife, J., Donnelly, S. E., Lucas, A., Gilles, J. and Ritsko, J. (1981) Optical Absorption and Electron-Energy-Loss Spectra of Helium Microbubbles in Aluminum. Physical Review Letters, 46 (18). pp. 1220-1223. ISSN 0031-9007

Aluminum thin films containing helium microbubbles produced by He+-ion implantation have been investigated by ultraviolet absorption and electron-energy-loss spectroscopies in the range 1-30 eV. The shape and position of the 11S0-n1P1 helium line series and several Al plasmon bands are discussed in terms of the physical state of helium in the bubbles. Results imply helium densities 3 to 6 times that of liquid He at 2°K and 1 bar pressure.
