In a recent publication we report on the deposition of novel nanoscale gradient copolymer films via initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD). In these films the chemical composition changes gradually from polymer type A to polymer type B. By enhancing the iCVD process with in-situ mass spectrometry, we were able to produce these materials at film thicknesses below 30 nm. The combination of two material states in one material opens up completely new chemical and physical properties that cannot be achieved with materials currently in use. The results are published in a recent article in the journal Materials Today (click link for further details).
