    We present the results of extensive numerical off-lattice Monte Carlo simulations of semiflexible block-copolymer chains adsorbed onto flat homogeneous surfaces. We have compared the behavior of several chain structures, such as homopolymers, diblocks, (AαBα) block copolymers, and random...

    We present the results of extensive Monte Carlo simulations of diblock copolymers adsorbed on stripe-patterned surfaces of various widths. We have found that the width of the stripe pattern is an important parameter which dictates favorable recognition on the surface. For certain stripe widths,...

    Using hyper-parallel tempering Monte Carlo simulation, multiple histogram reweighting method, and finite size scaling, we investigate the adsorption of fully flexible and rod-coil chains on the square lattice. We find that the phase behaviour changes with the chain length and flexibility. For...

    Localized adsorption of hard (noninteracting) spheroidal particles on homogeneous interfaces was analyzed theoretically. In contrast to previous studies concentrated on flat (side on) adsorption in the present approach an unoriented (quasi-three-dimensional) adsorption of prolate and oblate...
