The spin-coated thin-film morphology of poly(4-vinylpyridine) has been studied by AFM; the dark lines or disks (circular holes) in the AFM height images correspond to the depressed regions. An epitaxy-like ‘‘nano-trench’’ pattern was observed in the noncrystalline polymer film deposited on the crystalline graphite substrate. The transition from surface… CONTINUE READING
