The current treatment of instability evolution for a massive charged surface of helium needs a certain correction which would bridge the gap between the effect under consideration and the known processes of spinodal and binodal decomposition in the first-order transition theory. The peculiarities of instability evolution for the helium charged surface which exhibit spinodal (binodal) decomposition features are discussed.
A qualitative phase diagram for such transition is constructed on a plane with the coordinates: surface electron density-electric field over the 2D electron-charged plane.
