Long-range Correlated Dynamics in Organic Glasses

Vendredi 16 juin 2017 11:00 - Duree : 1 heure
Lieu : Seminar Room 7/8 - ILL 1, 71 avenue des Martyrs, Grenoble

Orateur : Zahra FAKHRAAI (Department of Chemistry - University of Pennsylvania - PA - USA)

Nanometer-sized thin films of small organic molecules are widely used in applications ranging from organic photovoltaics and organic light emitting diodes, to protective coatings and high resolution nano-imprint lithography. Physical vapor deposition (PVD) is widely used in manufacturing ultra-thin layers of amorphous organic solids, with an underlying assumption that the properties of these layers are bulk-like. In this presentation, I demonstrate that films of organic glass-formers with thicknesses of 30 nm or less have dynamics significantly enhanced relative to the bulk dynamics at temperatures well below the glass transition temperature, Tg. I show that a sharp glass to liquid transition exists when the thickness of the layer is changed from 40 nm down to 20 nm. This significant change in the glass dynamics is due to the enhanced mobility at the air/glass interface and the length scale over which the effects of this perturbation can propagate due correlated dynamics in the bulk glass. As such, we are able to show that these glassy systems have long-range correlated dynamics over length scales of about then times the size of the molecules, well exceeding their inter-molecular interaction range. While these measurements are important for a host of applications, they can also help elucidate the fundamental mechanisms of glass transition phenomenon, a question that have attracted numerous theoretical and experimental studies in the past half century. The results of these experiments are directly compared with some of the most well-known models of glass transition.
