Fluorescence intensity measurements of chromophore-doped or -labeled polymers have been used for the first time to determine the effects of decreasing film thickness on glass transition temperature, T(g), the relative strength of the glass transition, and the relative rate of physical aging below T(g) in supported, ultrathin polymer films. The temperature… CONTINUE READING
