Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The flexoelectric response of the oscillating membrane for different frequencies is studied. The influence of the adsorption of ions of different valencies on the membrane flexoeffect is considered. Different adsorption mechanisms corresponding to different binding of the electrolyte counterions to the lipid molecules are proposed.
