Quasi-unidirectional shrinkage of gels with well-oriented lipid bilayers upon uniaxial stretching

Author affiliations

Abstract

PDGI–PAAm gels with well oriented lipid bilayers show a quasi-unidirectional shrinkage upon uniaxial stretching along the bilayers. They shrink largely parallel to the bilayer but slightly perpendicular to it in order not to increase the bilayer area and its interfacial energy. Such an anisotropic deformation can be well-modelled based on classical theories for gel networks and lipid layers.
