Hierarchical self-assembly of a striped gyroid formed by threaded chiral mesoscale networks

Kirkensgaard, Jacob Judas Kain; Evans, Myfanwy E.; De Campo, Liliana; Hyde, Stephen


Numerical simulations reveal a family of hierarchical and chiral multicontinuous network structures self-assembled from a melt blend of Y-shaped ABC and ABD three-miktoarm star terpolymers, constrained to have equal-sized A/B and C/D chains, respectively. The C and D majority domains within these patterns form a pair of chiral enantiomeric gyroid labyrinths (srs nets) over a broad range of compositions. The minority A and B components together define a hyperbolic film whose midsurface follows...[Show more]
