helium dead-space

in colloid and surface chemistry
The position of the Gibbs surface is often defined experimentally as that surface which encloses the volume of space from which the solid excludes helium gas (the so-called helium dead-space), and is associated with the assumptions that the volume of the solid is unaffected by the adsorption of component i, and that helium is not adsorbed by the solid. This requires that the measurement of the helium dead-space be made at a sufficiently high temperature.
