Charged Particle Impact on Electrified Surfaces

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology book series (BRIEFSAPPLSCIENCES)


Here, we follow a recent analysis of Zohdi [4], the impact of particles on electrified surfaces has wide-ranging applications, for example, in coating technologies. A single particle impacting a surface will rebound according to the basic laws governing a conservation of linear momentum, in conjunction with restitution relations and friction laws.
