Growth Kinetics and Molecular Mobility of Irreversibly Adsorbed Layers in Thin Films of P2VP and PVME — •Marcel Gawek, Sherif Madkour, Andreas Hertwig, and Andreas Schönhals — Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung, Unter den Eichen 87, 12205 Berlin
In well-annealed thin polymer films, with non-repulsive polymer/substrate interactions, an irreversibly adsorbed layer is formed. These adsorbed layers have shown enormous potential for technological applications. Due to the hard accessibility of these layers, their growth kinetics and molecular dynamics are still not fully understood. Here, the irreversibly adsorbed layers of Poly(2-vinylpyridine) (P2VP) and Poly(vinyl methyl ether) (PVME) thin films are revealed by solvent-leaching experiments. The growth kinetics of these layers is investigated as a function of original film thickness and annealing times. The thickness, topography and quality of the adsorbed layer is determined with Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and spectroscopic ellipsometry. Additionally, the molecular mobility of the adsorbed layer is investigated with Broadband Dielectric Spectroscopy (BDS). A recently developed nanostructured capacitor (NSC) is employed to measure the adsorbed layers with a free surface layer depending on annealing and solvent-leaching time. The results are quantitatively compared and discussed with respect to recently published work.
