The effect of temperature jumps during polymer crystallization

Abstract:

Temperature changes during the growth of lamellar polymer crystals give rise to steps on the surface of the crystals. It has recently been suggested that these steps could provide important insights into the mechanism of polymer crystallization. In particular, a characterization of the profiles of these steps might reveal the fixed-point attractor that underlies a recently proposed crystallization mechanism. Here we examine this hypothesis by performing simulations of such temperature jumps u...
