Atomic force and ultrasonic force microscopy investigation of adsorbed layers formed by two incompatible polymers: polystyrene and poly(butyl methacrylate).

The observed structural inhomogeneity on the length scale of approximately 200-500 nm appears as result of thermodynamic incompatibility in the system and is conditioned by changes in the conformation states of the adsorbed macromolecules in the route of competitive adsorption of the components.
