Electrohydrodynamics of charged surfaces

Kursk State Technical University, 50 Let Oktyabrya str. 94, Kursk, 305040, Russian Federation

This review presents a methodology for, and basic theoretical and experimental results on, the effect of the electric field on dielectric liquids with free surfaces (plane surfaces, menisci, jets, and drops). The role of the surface conductivity and the finite charge relaxation time in the development of instabilities is highlighted.
