Microphase separation in multiblock copolymers

  • S. V. Panyukov
  • I. I. Potemkin


The phase diagram of a multiblock copolymer containing domains of coexistence of phases having different superlattice symmetries with a density of monomers of a given type that varies periodically in space. The parameters of such superlattices are calculated in the mean-field approximation, and it is shown that their wave vector varies continuously with the temperature.
