Dissertation: Two-length-scale multiblock copolymer self-assembly: theoretical investigations and computer simulations
Promotor(s): prof. G. ten Brinke
Faculty: Mathematics and Natural Sciences
The thesis is devoted to a theoretical study of the self-assembly in a special class of block copolymers. Due to unfavorable interactions between the connected blocks copolymer melts undergo microphase separation into well-ordered nano structures. In this work results obtained by three different theoretical approaches are presented, the strong segregation limit theory (SSL), the self-consistent field theory (SCFT) and the dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) computer simulation approach. Two different molecular architectures were investigated.
