The interfacial curvatures and several topological features “coordination number and interjunction distance” of two bicontinuous polymer morphologies, one in an ordered block copolymer and the other in a phase-separated polymer blend, were measured. It was found that the global topologies of the two morphologies reveal how the interfacial patches are connected. Experimental measurements of the Euler-Poincaré characteristic and genus corresponding to each morphology were also performed for comparison purposes.
