Highly aligned, substrate supported membranes have made it possible for physical techniques to extract unambiguous structural information previously not accessible from commonly available membrane dispersions, or so-called powder samples. This review will highlight some of the major breakthroughs in model membrane research that have taken place as a result of substrate supported samples.
