In this paper we investigate the electric interaction between a charged particle and a surface in which the charged ions are capable of moving in response to the electric potential disturbance caused by the approach of the charged particle. Such surfaces include ionic surfactants distributed in air-water interface and charged lipids in bilayer membranes. On… (More)
