Aqueous - Liquid Crystal Interfaces


Water Immiscible Liquid Crystal(A) Schematic illustration of the experimental system. hν, incident light. (B) Optical image and cartoon representation of the anchoring of 5CB and the state of the aqueous-5CB interface immediately after injection of a dispersion of vesicles formed from 0.1 mM L-DLPC in tris-buffered saline (TBS) (aqueous 10 mM Tris, 100 mM NaCl; pH 8.9). The optical image above the cartoon shows the transmission of polarized light (crossed polars) through the 5CB. Scale bar, 300 µm. (C) Optical image and cartoon representation of the anchoring of 5CB after ˜ 10 to 20 min of contact with the vesicle dispersion of L-DLPC. (D) Optical image and cartoon representation of the anchoring of 5CB after 2 hours of contact with the vesicle dispersion of L-DLPC.
