Title: The unphysical pinning of the domain growth during the separation of homopolymer blends near the spinodal
Abstract: We simulate model B of mesoscopic dynamic with the Flory-Huggins free for the homopolymer blend. We concentrate the study on the of the spatial coordinates in the model. We show that the used rescaling of the spatial coordinates, by the function at the spinodal, leads to the unphysical freezing of the We study the evolution of the system in two different One is the growth process induced by the temperature quench the metastable or unstable region of the phase diagram and the second the quench-jump process in which we first allow the system to below the spinodal and next heat it up below or above the The proper rescaling avoiding the unphysical pinning of the growth at the spinodal is proposed.
