Diffuse Layer

Some articles on layer, layers, diffuse layer:

Double Layer (interfacial)
... A double layer (DL, also called an electrical double layer, EDL) is a structure that appears on the surface of an object when it is placed into a ... The DL refers to two parallel layers of charge surrounding the object ... The first layer, the surface charge (either positive or negative), comprises ions adsorbed directly onto the object due to a host of chemical interactions ...
Double Layer (interfacial) - Mathematical Description
... There is also a recent IUPAC technical report on the subject of interfacial double layer and related electrokinetic phenomena ... reason for the formation of a “relaxed” (“equilibrium”) double layer is the non-electric affinity of charge-determining ions for a surface..." This process leads to the build up of an electric ... The net electric charge in this screening diffuse layer is equal in magnitude to the net surface charge, but has the opposite polarity ...
Dilatant - Definitions - Stabilized Suspensions - Electrostatically-stabilized Suspensions
... through an effect described by the Helmholtz double layer model ... The model has two layers ... The first layer is the charged surface of the particle, which creates an electrostatic field that affects the ions in the electrolyte ...
Electrophoresis - Theory
... According to the double layer theory, all surface charges in fluids are screened by a diffuse layer of ions, which has the same absolute charge but opposite sign with respect to that of the surface charge ... The electric field also exerts a force on the ions in the diffuse layer which has direction opposite to that acting on the surface charge ... actually applied to the particle, but to the ions in the diffuse layer located at some distance from the particle surface, and part of it is transferred all the way to the particle ...

Famous quotes containing the words layer and/or diffuse:

    The writer in me can look as far as an African-American woman and stop. Often that writer looks through the African-American woman. Race is a layer of being, but not a culmination.
    Thylias Moss, African American poet. As quoted in the Wall Street Journal (May 12, 1994)

    [T]he syndrome known as life is too diffuse to admit of palliation. For every symptom that is eased, another is made worse. The horse leech’s daughter is a closed system. Her quantum of wantum cannot vary.
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)
