Abstract

The morphology of thin films of diblock rod-coil copolymers containing one conjugated segment and one non-conjugated segment is analyzed with a combination of atomic force microscopy data and molecular mechanics/dynamics calculations. The copolymers organize as very long, thin objects with constant width and height in the nanometer range.
