Weakly conducting dielectric solid particles and liquid droplets in strong electric fields are known to undergo symmetry-breaking bifurcations leading to steady electrorotation. This so-called Quincke effect, which results from the antiparallel electrostatic dipole induced by the applied field inside the particles, is well described by the classic Taylor-Melcher leaky dielectric model.
