Local Reorientation Dynamics of Semiflexible Polymers in the Melt

Abstract

The reorientation dynamics of local tangent vectors of chains in isotropic amorphous melts containing semiflexible model polymers was studied by molecular dynamics simulations. The reorientation is strongly influenced both by the local chain stiffness and by the overall chain length. It takes place by two different subsequent processes: A shorttime non… (More)
