Abstract. The phase behaviour of dimyristoyl phosphatidyl choline (DMPC)
and cholesterol (CHO) monolayers at the air/water interface was
investigated by surface pressure and surface potential measurements using
Langmuir technique. The nano-structures of DMPC and CHO monolayers were
further studied by Langmuir-Blodgett technique (LBT) coupled with tapping
mode atomic force microscopy (AFM).
