We propose to perform combined measurements of neutron reflectometry (NR) and impedance spectroscopy (IS) to investigate the structure/function relationship of tethered bilayer lipid membranes (tBLM) on gold substrates with incorporated membrane transport proteins. This biomimetic membrane system is the core of the bio-fuel cell that we are developing to create energy in a bio-inspired way. Previous experiments have shown that lipid bilayers with a high fraction of cardiolipin show interesting properties for electrochemical application and...
