FIG. 1.

Tapping-mode AFM measurements: (a) height image of the region covered with treelike branched structures and clusters and (b) height image of the region covered only with clusters. The branched clusters are denoted by rings. The inset demonstrates schematically a stripe on the area of the sample in which the treelike patterns and clusters are located (near the edge illustrated with the solid line). The smallest BMA clusters are located near the opposite edge (dotted line).

Tapping-mode AFM measurements: (a) height and (b) phase images of the treelike branched structure, (c) height image of the treelike structure lying near the one shown in (a), (d) height images of the treelike ring structure, (e) height image of the BMA ridges, and (f) three-dimensional magnified image of a branch indicated by the bright box in (d).

(a) Calculated thickness of both BMA solution and NC solution layers as a function of evaporation time. (b) Calculated surface tensions vs evaporation time of the binary polymer solution. The curve characterizes the evaporation process of the BMA solution layer with (isopropanol), [poly(isobutyl methacrylate)], , , and . The curve describes the evaporation of the NC solution layer with (amyl acetate), (nitrocellulose), , , and . Values of , , , and are indicated additionally on the right hand side, respectively. (c) Calculated spreading coefficients and as a function of evaporation time.
