Ionization driven phase change

    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,

    Isn't that just called ionization?
