Title: Dynamics of Phase Separation in Polymer Blends Revisited: Morphology, Spinodal, Noise, and Nucleation
Abstract: The properties of the model B of mesoscopic dynamic with the free energy for the homopolymer blend are discussed. We on the rescaling of the spatial coordinates in the model and that the commonly used rescaling of the spatial coordinates the function vanishing at the spinodal leads to the unphysical of the domains. The proper rescaling function for the spatial which avoids the unphysical pinning of the domain growth at spinodal is proposed. We discuss in detail the evolution of measures during separation in homopolymer blends and the problem of nucleation close to the spinodal.
