The charge relaxation time of BMIMTFB can be estimated from literature values of its conductivity31 σ and its relative permittivity at room temperature39 ϵ1 = ϵfluid/ϵ0, where ϵ0 is the permittivity of free space, to be of the order of ϵ0ϵ1/σ ≃ 10−5 − 10−6 s−1, which is small compared to the reciprocal of the frequency of the field, 10−3 s−1.

We consider, both theoretically and experimentally, the deformation due to an electric field of a pinned nearly hemispherical static sessile drop of an ionic fluid with a high conductivity resting on the lower substrate of a parallel-plate capacitor. Using both numerical and asymptotic approaches, we find solutions to the coupled electrostatic and augmented Young–Laplace equations which agree very well with the experimental results. Our asymptotic solution for the drop interface extends previous work in two ways, namely, to drops that have zero-field contact angles that are not exactly π/2 and to higher order in the applied electric field, and provides useful predictive equations for the changes in the height, contact angle, and pressure as functions of the zero-field contact angle, drop radius, surface tension, and applied electric field. The asymptotic solution requires some numerical computations, and so a surprisingly accurate approximate analytical asymptotic solution is also obtained.
