The dynamic scale theory and fractal concepts are employed in the characterization of surface morphological properties of layer-by-layer (LBL) films from poly(o-methoxyaniline) (POMA) alternated with poly(vinyl sulfonic acid) (PVS). The fractal dimensions are found to depend on the procedures to fabricate the POMA/PVS multilayers, particularly with regard(More)
Self-organized block copolymer structures derived from dewetting of thin films are becoming important in nanotechnology because of the various spontaneous and regular sub-micrometric surface patterns that may be obtained. Here, we report on the self-organization of a poly(styrene)-b-poly(ethene-co-butene-1)-b-poly(styrene) triblock copolymer during drying(More)
This work presents the application of advanced analysis processes and datamining to images produced by scanning probe microscopy in polymers samplers. These techniques are applied to two specific problems: statistical characterization of polydispersivity in films of poly (o-methoxyaniline) (POMA) and morphological analysis of substrates of polymers used to(More)
Fluorene-based systems have shown great potential as components in organic electronics and optoelectronics (organic photovoltaics, OPVs, organic light emitting diodes, OLEDs, and organic transistors, OTFTs). These systems have drawn attention primarily because they exhibit strong blue emission associated with relatively good thermal stability. It is(More)
The control of morphology and coating of metal surfaces is essential for a number of organic electronic devices including photovoltaic cells and sensors. In this study, we monitor the functionalization of gold surfaces with 11-mercaptoundecanoic acid (MUA, HS(CH(2) )(10) CO(2) H) and cysteamine, aiming at passivating the surfaces for application in surface(More)
We present a study on the photoluminescence (PL) of thin films of poly-(p-phenylene vinylene) (PPV), non-stretched and uniaxially stretched. The experimental study was carried out using linear polarized light as the excitation beam, oriented either parallel or perpendicular to the stretch axis (S). The results showed that when the excitation light source(More)
