19 February 2013 Bilipid membrane phase characterization by reflectance anisotropy spectroscopy (RAS)
Author Affiliations +
In this work we propose the use of experimental and theoretical reflectance anisotropy spectra (RAS) as a new tool to identify structural and dynamical aspects of the bilipid membrane and its various constituent molecules. The role of geometric details at the atomic level and macroscopic quantities, such as the membrane curvature and tilt for the different gel phases, in the theoretical RAS spectra (using Kohn-Sham density functional theory (KS-DFT)) are presented. Then the results are compared to the experimentally measured spectra taken from other techniques.
