Main Question or Discussion Point

Greetings,
I've been searching online without success for information related to the process (name?) Of utilizing the repusive force between negatively ionized particles to facilitate a change of phase from liquid to plasma.
I would like to be able to take a substance in liquid form inside a vacuum, apply a voltage from say, a flyback transformer to the liquid and have the liquid transition to a plasma.

I would appreciate some feedback of its feasability or links to more information on the subject.

Thanks a bunch,
-Tay

Isn't that just called ionization?
