Paper Abstract

Crystalline nanomesa and nanowell formation has recently been discovered in polyvinylidene fluoride trifluoroethylene [P(VDF TrFE)] copolymer film, developed by Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) deposition. In this paper, a continuum field model is proposed to analyze this remarkable phenomenon, which is implemented in numerical simulations using finite difference method. Good agreement with experimental observations is observed.
