In this paper we collect some new observations about periodic critical points and local minimizers of a nonlocal isoperimetric problem, arising in the modeling of diblock copolymers. In the main result, by means of a purely variational procedure, we show that it is possible to construct (locally minimizing) periodic critical points whose shape resemble that of any given strictly stable constant mean curvature (periodic) hypersurface. Along the way, we establish several auxiliary results of independent interest.
