We study theoretically the effect of adding polymer to the dilute lamellar phase of surfactant solutions. The polymer, assumed semidilute and in a good solvent, is taken to have a repulsive or attractive interaction with surfactant bilayers, but has no other effect on their properties. Such polymers can mediate an attractive or repulsive interaction between bilayers which we combine with pre-existing interactions (the Helfrich repulsion, van der Waals, and hydration) using a simple additive… CONTINUE READING
