Abstract

In this paper permeabilisation of potato tissue caused by either microsecond electric pulses or nanosecond electric pulses is compared. The intensity of permeabilisation is quantified by means of bio-impedance change. Thanks to this method, the impact of the repetition frequency was investigated. Data show that very low repetition frequencies can be much more efficient to permeabilise.
