This image depicts the process of a vesicle flowing through a microchannel with a thermal interface at the middle. The vesicle consists of doubly thermo-reponsive polymers whose affinity to the solvent at the two ends responds to temperature in opposite directions. As a result, each individual polymer either has to flip its own orientation locally or slip through the bilayer onto the other side to accomplish the overall composition inversion of the vesicle.
