The time evolution of scattering structure functions is obtained by computer simulation experiments for the hybrid model of immiscible binary mixtures containing surfactant molecules, which are undergoing phase separation. The structure functions have a shoulder reflecting the existence of the two distinct characteristic lengths: the characteristic wavelength of the spinodally decomposing binary mixture and that induced by surfactant molecules.
