A unique embossed carbon layer from induced domain alignment in a block copolymer thin film under an electric field

Author affiliations

Abstract

A unique embossed carbon surface with regionally heterogeneous properties is constructed via carbonization of a polyacrylonitrile-b-poly(methyl methacrylate) (PAN-b-PMMA) block copolymer thin film precursor self-assembled under an external electric field. The PAN-b-PMMA block copolymer generates a thin surface having microdomains with alternating PAN–PMMA compositions different from that of the matrix when the microdomain alignment is induced under an electric field due to the difference in dielectric susceptibilities between two blocks.
