Abstract/Summary

Inverse bicontinuous cubic (Q(II)) phases are nanostructured materials formed by lipid self-assembly. We have successfully imaged thin films of hydrated Q(II) phases from two different systems using AFM. The images show periodic arrays of water channels with spacing and symmetry consistent with published SAXS data on the bulk materials.
