This chapter describes the study of transport properties of several different positive ions in superfluid helium. In addition to alkali and alkaline-earth ions, the still unsolved problem of the so-called exotic ions is considered, which contain negative ions which are faster than the common electron bubbles, whose nature remains unknown. Several hypotheses have been made to explain their nature, among which the most intriguing is the electrino hypothesis, i.e., the possibility that the electron in the electron bubble may undergo fission.

Keywords:   alkali ion mobility, alkaline-earth mobility, exotic ions, electrino, electron orbitsphere
