Abstract

In this work, we report calorimetric and refractive index measurements in a microemulsion system. The anlalysis is made as a function of the water volume fraction ϕ at constant temperature and pressure. In such a way, our microemulsion represents a well-defined high packed liquid system that can be used as model system for the study of the properties of the glass transition. The obtained data are in agreement with the findings of the recent mode-mode coupling theories.
