Abstract

Basic criteria are given for the design and use of a diffusion cell for a Rayleigh interferometer for membrane-transport studies. The effect of wave-front deflection on the fringe pattern is presented, as well as a numerical technique that allows the data to be corrected for deflection effects. A completely new type of diffusion cell is discussed that allows transport through membranes to be observed.
