Abstract
Quantitative differential interference contrast (qDIC) microscopy is applied to the study of the main phase transition of dipentadecanoylphosphatidylcholine (DC15PC) supported lipid bilayers. We measure thickness changes of about 1nm occurring in the bilayer with sub-nanometre resolution and show how the presence of fluorescently labelled lipids, even at small concentrations, can broaden the phase transition.
