Abstract

The response to an electric field of electrolytic solutions, gels, liquid crystals, and other soft materials is described by the drift-diffusion and Poisson equations. Existing models, used for the interpretation of experimental data, usually consider the system as one dimensional (1D), which is valid only for an infinite electrode size. Here we solve numerically the model equations in 2D, considering a circular electrode with a finite radius, and discuss the limit of validity of the 1D approximation.
