Soft subject technological know-how is these days an acronym for an more and more very important category of fabrics, which levels from polymers, liquid crystals, colloids as much as complicated macromolecular assemblies, protecting sizes from the nanoscale up the microscale. computing device simulations have confirmed as an integral, if no longer the main strong, device to appreciate houses of those fabrics and hyperlink theoretical types to experiments. during this first quantity of a small sequence famous leaders of the sphere assessment complicated issues and supply serious perception into the state of the art tools and medical questions of this vigorous area of sentimental condensed topic research.

0 ! , whether the excess of the stable phase (integral criterion) or the density at a certain radius (crossing criterion) is fixed). This is no longer valid for sub-critical or supercritical bubbles (ψ = 0), where the profiles as well as the free energy depends on how one prevents the bubble to shrink or grow. This limits the application of the constraint grandcanonical ensemble to near-critical bubbles. To calculate the segment densities it is useful to introduce the end segment distribution t q P (r, t) = D[r]δ(r − r(t)) exp − 0 3 2b2 t ds s=0 dr ds 2 − t ds w P (r(s)) .

1 The SCFT does describe the variation of chain conformations in the vicinity of spatial inhomogeneities. 2 For a symmetric polymer blend phase separation occurs already for χ > χ crit = 2/N 1 27 Polymer + Solvent Systems Since the interactions are strictly local, it is not possible to represent the solvent as a structureless point particle. In the following we assume that the size of the solvent particle is comparable to the size of a polymer segment. , we set N S = 1 and b S = b. Specifying the segmental interaction free energy functional, and the spatial characteristics of the polymer and solvent molecules we have completely defined the model that we employ in our SCF calculations.

In the simulations (cf. Sect. 5) such 41 Polymer + Solvent Systems bubbles are observable in finite volumes when densities are fixed (canonical ensemble). In the SCF calculations, we use the grandcanonical ensemble and observe only critical bubbles. In principle, the transition from the metastable, super-saturated liquid to the thermodynamically stable vapor phase is a non–equilibrium phenomenon and a kinetic theory or computer simulations are well suited to tackle the problem [175]. This holds a fortiori if there is a large disparity in the dynamical behavior between the components.
