Abstract We present a dynamical theory which incorporates the electron-electron correlations and the effects of external magnetic fields for an electron escaping from a helium surface. Analytical expressions for the escape rate can be obtained in various limits. In particular, the tunneling rate with a parallel magnetic field is presented explicitly.

Single electron tunneling from bound states on the surface of liquid helium.
TLDR
Tuning rates for the escape of electrons from the surface of liquid helium are measured using a 1D image potential previously determined by spectroscopy and a static, single-particle potential term incorporating the dynamics of the 2D electron gas.
Many-body aspects of the tunneling of electrons from a helium surface.
We present a many-body WKB description of the tunneling of a single electron from the surface of liquid helium. Accurate upper and lower bounds show conclusively that the observed
Experiments on tunneling and correlations.
TLDR
Tuning is observed in a system of interacting electrons confined to a two-dimensional layer by varying the electron density from the single-particle limit to the highly correlated Wigner-crystal regime.
Electron escape from the image-potential-induced surface states on liquid helium
Electron escape from the two-dimensional surface state is studied for liquid 4He and 3He surfaces. Experimental conditions are established under which “proper” signals are obtained to give the
Escape rate of surface state electrons on liquid helium below 1 K
The escape rate of surface state electrons on liquid helium was measured in the temperature interval 0.56<T<1.0 K for electron areal density below 5×107 cm−2, where the rate is independent of
Observation of tunneling and magneto-tunneling out of a 2D Wigner crystal
We measured the escape rates of surface state electrons from an electron layer confined at the liquid helium-vacuum interface in the temperature range of 30–450mK, and for densities 0.02–2.2×108cm−2.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that when temperature increases, the evaporation rate may decrease, have a maximum and minimum, and change almost discontinuously.
