Title: Structural phase study in un-patterned and patterned PVDF semi-crystalline films

This work explores the structural phase studies of organic polymer- polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) thin films in semi-crystallized phase and nano-patterned PVDF thin films. The nanopatterns are transferred with the CD layer as a master using soft lithography technique. The semi-crystalline PVDF films were prepared by a still and hot (SH) method, using a homemade spin coater that has the proficiency of substrate heating by a halogen lamp. Using this set up, smooth PVDF thin films in semi-crystalline α-phase were prepared using 2-Butanone as solvent. XRD, AFM and confocal Raman microscope have been utilized to study the structural phase, crystallinity and quality of the films.
