Polymers, liquids and colloids in electric fields : interfacial instabilities, orientation and phase transitions /

This unique book aims to expose the reader to a wide range of phenomena occurring when soft matter systems are put under the influence of an external electric field. The book shows how an electric field can be used to affect objects at the submicron scale, and how it controls the phase behavior of l...
