Information on interactions involved in the stability of lamellar phases are obtained by X-ray, neutron and light scattering investigations. In the phases swollen by brine, stability seems to be driven by thermally induced steric interactions. In the phases swollen by oil, the experimental results indicate that long-range repulsive interactions are responsible for the stability of the stack of lamellae.
