Crystallization of a polymer on a surface

Abstract:

We have studied the structure and free energy landscape of a semiflexible lattice polymer in the presence of the surface of a polymer crystal. At low temperatures coexistence of two-dimensional integer-folded crystals is observed. As the temperature is increased there is a transition from these crystalline configurations to a disordered coil adsorbed onto the surface. The polymer then gradually develops a three-dimensional character at higher temperatures. We compute the free energy as a func...
