Breakdown of dynamic scaling in thin film binary liquids undergoing phase separation.

Abstract

The kinetics of phase separation in thin polymer blend films displaying discrete and bicontinuous domain morphologies are examined. For discrete domains, the correlation length xi grows as t(1/3), in agreement with a coalescence model. By plotting xi/d vs t/t(i) (initiation time), universal growth behavior is obtained for thickness values (d) from 1000 to… (More)
