In science:

Building on recent observations of salt depletion and electro-convection near micro/nanochannel junctions , the Rubinstein-Zaltzman instability has been been demonstrated experimentally by applying low-frequency ac (square-wave) voltages to confine it to slowly oscillating boundary layers .
Strongly nonlinear dynamics of electrolytes in large ac voltages
The application of a large voltage leads to the new effect of salt adsorption by the diffuse layer and related depletion of the bulk concentration, first described by Bazant et al. , and in higher dimensions, surface conduction through the diffuse layer becomes important at the same time .
Strongly nonlinear dynamics of electrolytes in large ac voltages
It is also accompanied by a gradual bulk salt depletion that propagates across the cell over O(1) times after the ac voltage is turned on, similar to the case of the sudden dc voltage.
Strongly nonlinear dynamics of electrolytes in large ac voltages
At large voltage, local salt depletion in the diffusion layer can cause the double layer to change to a non-equilibrium structure, with an extended “space-charge” layer that is completely depleted of coions.
Strongly nonlinear dynamics of electrolytes in large ac voltages
The weakly nonlinear regime in a blocking electrolytic cell generally breaks down at large voltages, when the neutral salt adsorption is by the diffuse layers is strong enough to significantly deplete the quasi-neutral bulk solution in the diffusion layers [1, 52, 53, 54].
