Abstract

Electrophoretic deposition of polymer chains is studied by computer simulations. Effects of molecular weight (L-c), field (E), and temperature (T) on the growth of the interface width, roughness, and density profiles are examined on a discrete lattice with kink-jump segmental dynamics of chains. Effect of faster segmental dynamics will be pointed out.
