Continuum modelling and numerical approaches for energy minimisation in diblock copolymers

Abstract:

We use a continuum phase field model to study pattern formation in Diblock Copolymers (DBCs), with an emphasis on terracing in thin films.

Phase separation in DBCs is an important process in nanotechnology that yields an array of highly regular structures on very fine length scales that are of enormous utility. Terraces are ubiquitous in thin film DBC melts. It was long believed that modelling these structures was an intractable problem, but recent attempts to do so using the Self C...
