The mesoscopic structures formed by self-assembly of diblock copolymers in thin film geometry are interesting for a variety of applications. However, spin coating leads to domain structures with defects. Vapor treatment has been shown to be an effective way to increase the long-range order.

We have studied the structural changes in thin films of poly(styrene-b-butadiene) diblock copolymers and their kinetics during vapor treatment. In this system, the initial lamellar orientation (parallel or perpendicular to the substrate) can be controlled by the block copolymer molar mass [1]. We have investigated both initial orientations as well as the influence of the initial film thickness, solvent selectivity, and the vapor pressure using grazing-incidence small-angle x-ray scattering with a time resolution of a few sec. The growth of the lamellar domains can be controlled by the degree of swelling.
