Schematics of the HMDS treatment.

FIG. 2.

Top: AFM image of the sample from the experiment 131e. Bottom: Corresponding histogram. The bin size is increased up to 1 nm for illustrative purpose. Inset shows zoomed bottom part of the histogram.

FIG. 3.

Top: Linear heating scans for 5–6 nm thick as-spun PS films on an untreated (green triangles) and HMDS-treated (black circles) Si. Bottom: AFM images of 5 nm thick PS coatings on HMDS-treated Si: as-spun film (a), the film after heat treatment (b). AFM image of 5 nm thick PS on untreated Si after similar heat treatment (c) is shown for comparison.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Top: Linear heating (red) and cooling (blue) scan of 5.4 nm thick PS on an untreated Si. Sample is annealed at 160 °C beforehand. Bottom: Linear heating (red) and cooling (blue) scans for the 5.2 nm thick PS on HMDS-treated Si. Thin lines are scans within 20–110 °C range (before dewetting) and the first heating scans up to 160 °C (demonstrates dewetting above 120 °C). Thick lines represent the subsequent scans.

FIG. 5.

First TM heating scan of as-spun film (shown in red) versus subsequent TM scans (black). The sample is 39 nm thick PS on Si. Inset: The first linear heating scan of as-spun film (red) shown in comparison with subsequent linear heating scans. The sample is 37 nm thick PS on Si.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

Top: The first TM heating scan of as-spun film (shown in red) versus subsequent TM scans (black) for 5.3 nm thick PS on HMDS-treated Si. Bottom: 3 initial TM scans (red) vs subsequent TM scans (black) after dewetting. The sample is 5.0 nm thick PS on HMDS-treated Si. Inset: The same experiment on untreated Si. The first TM scan (red) and subsequent TM scans (black), PS thickness is 5.2 nm.
