Surface structure of amorphous polystyrene: Comparison of SFM imaging and lattice chain simulations

Abstract:

We identify and characterize surface features on the length scale 1-100 nm on a free equilibrated surface of amorphous polystyrene (in contact with air), from a combination of scanning force microscopy and coarse-grained polymer simulation techniques. By carrying out a lateral autocorrelation analysis of the experimental and simulated surface height profiles, we find characteristic length scales of structural organization of polymer chains depending on their molecular mass in the range 3.9 kg...
