On the Glass Transition in Polymer Films: Recent Monte Carlo Results

  • J. Baschnagel (a1) and K. Binder (a1)

Abstract

This paper reports results of a Monte Carlo simulation for a simplified lattice modelof a supercooled polymer film. The film geometry is realized by two opposite hard walls.The distance between the walls is varied. The chains exhibit a strong tendency to orientparallel to the walls and are flattened when being very close to them. This deviation of thepolymer structure with respect to the bulk is accompanied by an acceleration of local densityfluctuations. On the other hand, the diffusion coefficient of a chain remains unaffected.
