NafionR strips spaced at 50, 100, 250 & 500 μm edge-to-edge. Exclusion zones form from the NafionR surfaces and merge into an unbroken EZ in 50- and 100 μm-spaced lines. NafionR strips are seen as the bright white squares on the images. At 250 and 500 μm the EZ forms in discrete zones that do not combine. The yellow dashed lines demarcate edges of glass support. Dashed black lines indicate extent of clear EZ. Diagram on the far right indicates the viewing height (arrow) on which the objective was focused.
