First-principles study of aluminum-polyethylene interfaces


The ideal interfaces of aluminum with different configurations of polyethylene were studied through first principles calculations based on density functional theory. The theoretical vacuum energy shift caused by interfacial dipole moments agrees well with experimental result for Al-tetratetracontane (TTC, n-CH3(CH2)42CH3) interface. Although the interfacial… (More)
