Phase Heterogeneities of Lipidic Aggregates

Abstract:

Article Preview

We propose a model for explanation the “domain-wall” type configuration states in binary lipid mixtures of cationic and neutral lipids, associated with observed relaxation effects in their aggregates. We apply the analogy with formation of Kibble-Zurek topological defects, which we suppose connected with structural dynamics of the lipid phases. In frames of the proposed model, the density of kink-type defects and the energy of the configurations are calculated.
