Nanoparticle lipid vesicles are developed with controllable water exchange to provide a ground-truth benchmark for MR methods which measure exchange. Diffusion data are collected as a function of diffusion delay Δ. An exchange time, τ, is measured to be 164 ms in a phantom with a highly fluid membrane. These materials should help to clarify water dynamics in complex systems.
