Abstract

Experimental data for the kinetics of order formation in a polystyrene-polyisopropene block copolymer melt is presented, limiting the attention to small quench depths, ε. The temperature dependence of molecular mobility was obtained from independent rheological measurements. The ε dependence of the rate of growth of ordered domains dl/dt was demonstrated, after correcting for changes in molecular mobility, exhibits power law behavior, with an exponent of about 2.
