Gaussian random fields with two level-cuts—Model for asymmetric microemulsions with nonzero spontaneous curvature?

Arleth, Lise; Marc̆elja, Stjepan; Zemb, Thomas


The microstructure of a microemulsion is dominated by the thermodynamics of the surfactantinterface between the oil and water domains. As the spontaneous curvature of this surfactantinterface is strongly temperature dependent the microstructure of microemulsions also becomes temperature dependent. In the present work we have assumed that the thermodynamics of the interface is determined by the Helfrich Hamiltonian and that the interface can be described by two appropriately chosen level-cuts of...[Show more]
