In-situ AFM study of near-surface crystallization in PET and PEN

Abstract:

The surface crystallization behaviour of PET (poly(ethylene terephthalate)) and PEN (poly(ethylene 2,6-naphthalate)) spin-coated thin films was compared by means of AFM (atomic force microscopy) with an in-situ heating stage. As the films were heated up stepwise, characteristic surface crystals appeared at a crystallization temperature (Tc) in the near-surface region which is about 15 ºC under the bulk Tc, and were replaced by bulk crystals when the temperature was increased to the bulk Tc. I...
