Membranes of microorganisms stressed with electric field can be deformed and ruptured due to unbalanced electro-mechanical forces. The paper provides an analytical analysis of the forces acting on bio-membranes in liquid and gaseous environment. This model can help in optimisation and further development of novel field and plasma based decontamination methods.
