    I fear I don't quite understand your question. Relaxation of what?
    Maybe you can extend the description of what exactly you are interested in?

    Btw, the second guy is called "Hückel", not Huckle.

    OK, you mean reshaping of the ionic cloud after the "central" ion moved.

    Why would the electric field stop the process? It can shift the equilibrium positions of ions, but it won't stop the relaxation.
