Qunatum Fluids and Solids, in particular, surface phenomena of normal and superfluid 4He, 3He, and their mixtures. Experimental investigations on these systems have been carried out by using surface state electrons and ions trapped under the free surfaces.  The recent emphasis is utilization of single electrons on liquid He surface as qubits.
