Abstract

We evaluate the low-frequency component electric microfield distribution at a charged point, i.e., the field distribution due to ions, possibly of different species, which interact through an electron-screened potential. The method employed is an adaptation of the adjustable-parameter exponential (APEX) approximation previously developed for the high-frequency component and involves a noninteracting-quasiparticle representation of the electron-screened ions designed to yield the correct second moment of the microfield distribution. The APEX results are compared to Monte Carlo simulations, and we find good agreement.
