However, attempts to increase the electron density in order to observe the ‘quantum melting’ of the system to a Fermi degenerate gas are hindered by an instability of the helium surface. Here we describe experimental efforts to reach the degenerate regime on thin helium films and microstructured substrates, for which the surface instability is suppressed. We demonstrate that, although the electron densities obtained exceed those for bulk helium substrates, observation of quantum melting remains challenging. We discuss possible solutions to the technical challenges involved.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Leiderer, Paul</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Leiderer, Paul</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2016-04-04T14:45:33Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2016-05</dcterms:issued> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Lin, Juhn-Jong</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Scheer, Elke</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Lin, Juhn-Jong</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Rees, David G.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Rees, David G.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Kono, Kimitoshi</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Kono, Kimitoshi</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2016-04-04T14:45:33Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Scheer, Elke</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
