Surface effects on the demixing of colloid-polymer systems.

Abstract:

We studied the effect of a solid surface on the fluid-fluid phase separation of a colloid-polymer mixture in real space, exploring demixing from both the unstable and metastable regions of the phase diagram. The presence of a wall breaks the symmetry of the phase separation morphology in the direction perpendicular to the surface, influencing the coarsening behavior of domains. We analyzed the thickening of the wetting layers and found that hydrodynamic transport processes can significantly i...
