A Hartree analysis has been performed for compressible diblock copolymers of incompatible pairs to investigate the concentration fluctuation effects on their microphase separation behavior. The free energy in the Hartree analysis is obtained from the self-consistent correction to its mean-field cousin, which was recently formulated for such copolymer… (More)
