Good online source on electrostriction

  1. Aug 5, 2005 #1
    Can someone refer me to good online sources about electrostriction, or simply explain the phenomena to me?

    Is there a reason why there's a kwadratic dependence on the electric field?

    Thank you.

    I have not currently found a good theoretical explanation of why the deformation (strain) of a material has a quadratic dependence on the magnitude of the electric field. However, I did find -

    This paper might help - http://www.elet.polimi.it/upload/melloni/Pubblicazioni/OL23-Estriction.pdf

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrostriction - (needs attention according to Wiki)
    Apparently a good discussion can be found in an IEEE Handbook, but I don't know which one.
