We introduce a model for microemulsions whose basic building blocks are cylindrical tubes conne by spherical junctions forming a network. The model predicts analytic scaling laws which quantitativ reproduce several prominent experimental features of the phase diagram, including the closed of 2-phase coexistence and the 3-phase body. The interfacial nature… CONTINUE READING
