Abstract

The orientation distribution function for colloidal particles immersed in Couette flow with an electric field parallel to the velocity gradient is derived in this study. A description of a modified and improved version of streaming birefringence apparatus built to test this theory and to conduct other studies in streaming birefringence is also included.
