Two-dimensional condensation was initiated in a self-assembled mixed monolayer of spiropyran and octadecanol by a nanosecond laser pulse. The dynamics of the process were monitored using nanosecond pump-probe Brewster angle microscopy. Domain growth followed a power law with a growth exponent of 0.47 at a velocity approaching 20 ms-1. This represents a limit for the rate of longitudinal signaling of pressure waves through a self-assembled amphiphilic layer at an interface and adds to our understanding of signal transmission rates in biomimetic membranes where morphological change in one region can be signaled to a more remote region.
