Sponge Phase Under Shear

  • H. F. Mahjoub (a1), C. Bourgaux (a2), K. M. McGrath (a1) (a3), J.F. Tassin (a4) and M. Kleman (a1)...


The L3 phase under shear transforms to a lamellar phase L* α above some critical shear rate. We study the sequence of successive states (rheothinning, flow birefringence, transition region, lamellar) with simultaneous rheooptical methods, in situ X-ray scattering, and light microscopy observations. The transition region is biphasic, and the two phases display epitaxial relationship immediately after shearing is ceased.
