Polarization charge: Theory and applications to aqueous interfaces.


When an electric field is applied across an interface, a dielectric will acquire a polarization charge layer, assumed infinitely thin in the theory of macroscopic dielectrics and also in most treatments of electrokinetic phenomena in nanoscale structures. In this work we explore the polarization charge layer in molecular detail. Various formal relations and… (More)
