Electric Properties of Foams

  • J. J. Bikerman
Part of the Foams book series (APPLIED PHYS, volume 10)


Electric conductance is the only electric property of liquid foams for which experimental data are available. Apparently no one has measured yet their dielectric constants, the dependence of this constant on bubble dimensions, and so forth. First, the electric conductance of single films is reviewed.
