Title: Growth of polystyrene domains in isotropic, nematic and smectic phase of 8CB liquid crystal
Abstract: A small-angle light-scattering (SALS) technique is performed to the phase separation in the films of flexible polymer PS) mixed with low molecular weight thermotropic liquid LC (4-cyano-4'-n-octylbiphenyl, 8CB). The growth of isotropic domains is studied in both isotropic and anisotropic (nematic smectic phase) LC matrices, as a function of time, film thickness, film composition. The size of the domains, L(t), grows algebraically time as L(t) similar to t(beta). For 70/30 wt \% of 8CB/PS, we
