(a) Snapshot of gyroid phase formed in our simulation with the box size of . (b) The projection of Fig. 1(a) along the 111 axis. This image was obtained with periodic replication of the simulation volume along axis, axis, and axis, so that eight copies of the unit cube are present.
Snapshot formed between two neutral surfaces; only monomers are shown. (a) ; (b) ; (c) ; (d) ; (e) ; (f) ; (g) ; (h) ; and (i) . In this and the following figures, images were obtained by periodic replication of the simulation volume along axis and axis, so that four copies of the same structure are present.
Hybrid morphologies formed between neutral surfaces. (a) , (b) , and (c) ; left: outward appearance: dark; monomers; light: monomers; right: isosurface contour of the monomers.
The density distribution of the short block along directions perpendicular to the surfaces in the surfaces with .
Representative snapshots of morphologies observed between two surfaces strongly attractive to monomers with different film thickness; dark: monomers; light: monomers. (a) at ; (b) at ; (c) at ; (d) at ; (e) at ; (f) at ; (g) at ; (h) at ; (i) at . Left: outward appearance; right: only monomers are shown in the interior of the film.
Order parameter profiles of the morphologies shown in Fig. 5.
Complex morphologies between surfaces weakly attractive to monomers. (a) at ; (b) at ; (c) at ; (d) at ; (e) at ; left: outward appearance; dark: monomers; light: monomers; right: isosurface contour of the monomers.
Surface-induced lamellar morphology between surfaces weakly attractive to monomers: (a) ; (b) .
Summary of the morphologies observed in our simulations of asymmetric diblock copolymer confined between two identical and parallel surfaces. denotes one lamella having a planar interface parallel to the surfaces; denotes perpendicular lamellae; denotes one layer of perforated lamellae of blocks (with -rich holes) parallel to the surfaces; denotes perpendicular perforated lamellae; denotes the cylinders of blocks parallel to the surfaces, denotes one layer of half-cylinders parallel to the surfaces (observed near the surfaces).
