Stimuli-responsive polymers can react with a drastic change in properties towards even slight changes in their surrounding environment. Especially in thin film morphology, such films are well-suited for a manifold of applications such as nano-switches, artificial muscles in soft-robotics or sensors. In order to implement stimuli-responsive polymers in the aforementioned application fields, a fundamental understanding of the underlying kinetics is necessary. In our recent work, we followed the H2O and D2O swelling and the corresponding exchange kinetics in a multi-stimuli responsive block copolymer thin film with in-situ time of flight (TOF) neutron reflectometry (NR). TOF-NR enables high time resolution with which the mechanisms of water uptake and exchange can be followed. A theoretical model is applied to describe the swelling and exchange kinetics in order to obtain detailed insights about the underlying mechanisms of these dynamic processes.
