Restricted diffusion of guest molecules in polymer thin films on solid substrates as revealed by three-dimensional single-molecule tracking

Author affiliations

Abstract

3D single-molecule tracking revealed that the translational diffusion of guest dyes in poly(2-hydroxyethyl acrylate) thin films on glass substrates was confined in a horizontal layer at a distance longer than 300–700 nm from the surface of the substrate. This peculiar long-range effect suggests that the interaction between the host polymer and the interface could affect the properties of polymers at a much longer distance than conventionally estimated.
