Abstract

In a strong electric field, there are bound states of an electron at the surface of liquid helium, interacting with a large cluster of atoms in the bulk of liquid. This phenomenon is related to long-range interaction between the electron and the dipole moment of the cluster. The electron, holding the cluster under the liquid surface, is localized at this surface. One electron is capable of binding a cluster of up to 106 atoms. The value of the binding energy may reach up to several kelvins.
