The wetting behavior of homopolymer on a chemically identical polymer brush is mathematically equivalent to the interaction between a pair of opposing brushes in a matrix of parent homopolymer. We examine both systems using self-consistent field theory ͑SCFT͒ with a new highly efficient and accurate algorithm. Our calculations provide compelling evidence that the global minimum in the free energy curve remains at a finite film thickness, implying that the brush/homopolymer interfacial tension,doi:10.1063/1.1385557 fatcat:zhblbruazrcszm56zj5zlfhik4
