Constrained Dewetting of Polymers Grafted onto a Nonadsorbing Surface in Poor Solvents: From Pancake Micelles to the Holey Layer

Huh, June; Ahn, Cheol-Hee; Jo, Won Ho; Bright, Joanne Nicole; Williams, David

Description

Using both theory and computer simulation, we study the dewetting problem of a polymer layer grafted on a surface in a poor solvent. We find that in the regime of moderate grafting density the layer is unstable to the formation of finite-sized holes. The
