A Rhombohedral Family of Minimal Surfaces as a Pathway between the P and D Cubic Mesophases

Schroeder, Gerd; Ramsden, Stuart; Fogden, A; Hyde, Stephen


A medial surface (MS) analysis of the rhombohedral infinite periodic minimal surface family rPD is presented. The rPD family of bicontinuous surfaces has been suggested as a pathway for transitions between its two cubic members, the P and the D surface, in mesophases in liquid-crystalline self-assembly. The MS is a representation of a labyrinth as a centered 2D skeleton. By providing a definition of a pointwise channel diameter, the MS allows for an analysis of homogeneity of such surfaces...[Show more]
