Fundamentals of Phase Separation in Polymer Blend Thin Films by Sam Coveney

By Sam Coveney

This paintings sheds new gentle on basic facets of section separation in polymer-blend skinny motion pictures. A key characteristic underlying the theoretical versions is the unification of one-dimensional thermodynamic section equilibria with movie evolution phenomena in - and 3 dimensions. at the beginning, a longtime 'phase portrait' strategy, helpful for visualising and calculating section equilibria of polymer-blend movies, is generalised to platforms with no handy simplifying symmetries. Thermodynamic equilibria on my own are then used to provide an explanation for a movie roughening mechanism during which laterally coexisting stages could have varied depths on the way to minimise loose strength. The section pics are then utilised to illustrate that simulations of lateral part separation through a temporary wetting layer, which conform rather well with experiments, might be satisfactorily defined through 1D section equilibria and a 'surface bifurcation' mechanism. finally, a unique 3D version of coupled part separation and dewetting is constructed, which demonstrates that floor roughening shadows part separation in skinny movies.
