Abstract

Polymer mixtures and block copolymers in thin film geometry find much recent attention, both theoretically [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63] and experimentally [5,7,8,29,64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106, 107, 108, 109, 110, 111, 112, 113, 114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 119, 120, 121, 122]. This interest arises because of various applications of thin polymer films in materials science (adhesive properties, lubrication, coatings, etc.) [123,124], but also from the point of view of basic science: e.g., from suitable measurements of thin films of polymer mixtures one can extract information on bulk phase behavior (e.g. [70,81]), interfacial widths (e.g. [84,125]), and surface properties controlling surface enrichment or the formation of wetting layers (e.g. [5,8,65,69,74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 126]). In such thin films, one may also observe very interesting kinetic phenomena and associated structure formation, e.g. growth of surface enrichment layers and adjacent depletion layers [66,69,83], dynamics of phase inversion in unmixed films [77], and — last but not least — surface-directed spinodal decomposition [5,127, 128, 129, 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 140, 141, 142, 143, 144, 145, 146, 147, 148, 149, 150, 151, 152, 153, 154, 155, 156, 157, 158]. Of course, also the dynamics of ordering in block copolymer films is a topic of great current interest (e.g. [101]), but will not be considered further in this article.
