Abstract

We study kinetic pathways of phase transitions in thin films of block copolymers subjected to an applied electric field by means of dynamic self-consistent-field calculations. We consider structures ranging from spheres to lamellae. We find that the kinetic pathway taken by a system near a phase transition is very different from the one far from a phase transition. © 2006 American Chemical Society.
