Influence of Surface Energy on the Direct Flexoelectric Effect in a Plate
The influence the surface energy introduced earlier by Kretschmer and Binder has on flexoelectric polarization induced by bending a dielectric plate is studied in the context of phenomenological theory. In contrast to the familiar effect this energy has on permittivity, its influence on the flexoelectric response does not vanish within a thick plate.
