Crystallization and phase separation in thin film polymers

Abstract:

Properties of polymers in thin films are distinct from those in the bulk due to the significant effects of free or substrate surfaces. The presence of a free surface allows an increased mobility of polymer chains in the near surface region, therefore, a lower glass transition temperature (Tg). With this lower surface Tg, a surface-specific crystallization phenomenon occurring at temperatures much lower than the bulk crystallization temperature (T...
