The dielectric response in lyotropic lamellar and sponge phases made up of a nonionic surfactant and water was measured. A Maxwell-Wagner relaxation influenced by the charge accumulation at the interface between membrane and water was observed. Overall, results give some basic information for understanding the dynamic electrical properties of other complex systems composed of lipid membranes.
