Mechanical response of a surface of increasing hardness covered with a nonuniform polymer brush: a numerical simulation model

Author affiliations

Abstract

The compression force with indentation on a polymer brush with chains of unequal lengths is predicted with numerical simulations, as a function of increasing hardness of the grafting surface, finding that properties of the brush are distinguished from those of the surface and that its hardness propagates through the brush.
