Figure 11

A schematic representation of the quiescent interfacial-bulk growth mechanism. (a) Initial two-phase configuration and the suggested interfacial and bulk regions, (b) interfacial region where slow linear supply of silica source in packed micelles yields linear growth of ordered silica fibers, and (c) bulk region where facilitated silica diffusion to loosely packed micelles yields 3D growth of low-ordered spheres and gyroids.
