Electric-field-induced displacement of a charged spherical colloid embedded in an elastic Brinkman medium.

Abstract

When an electric field is applied to an electrolyte-saturated polymer gel embedded with charged colloidal particles, the force that must be exerted by the hydrogel on each particle reflects a delicate balance of electrical, hydrodynamic, and elastic stresses. This paper examines the displacement of a single charged spherical inclusion embedded in an… (More)
