Abstract:

Four possible non-thermal effects of alternating electrical fields were experimentally and theoretically studied. These four effects were assessed for their possible biological significance. These effects, all the result of mechanical forces on particles dispersed in a fluid, are 1 pearl-chain formation, 2 orientation of nonspherical particles, 3 forces in inhomogeneous electrical fields, and 4 alternating electrophoresis. Summaries of research on each of these effects are presented.
