Dynamics of pore formation in membranes

Topological Dynamics in the Physical and Biological Sciences
How long do fluid stressed membranes last before rupture? Conversely, how high must the surface tension be to rupture a membrane? To answer these challenging questions we have developed a theoretical framework that allows description and reproduction of Dynamic Tension Spectroscopy (DTS) observations. The kinetics of membrane rupture is described as a combination of initial pore formation followed by a Brownian process of the pore radius crossing a time-dependent energy barrier.
