The spinning of suspended particles in a two-pulsed, three-electrode system

  • Herbert A. Pohl
Article

Abstract

Suspended particles can be made to spin while in suspension in a medium and subject to a rotating electric field. The theory given here is for an electrical system comprised of three symmetrically spaced electrodes, one grounded, the other two given successive pulses. The theory provides the background for the application of such techniques to examine the dielectric properties of single cells or other living or nonliving particles.
