The field application and larger polymer charges accelerated EPD. Placement of multiple polymers at the same lateral displacement from the surface reduced average deposition times due to “crowding”, giving monolayer coverage. These findings were used to develop and validate Brownian dynamics simulations of multilayer polymer EPD in scaled-up systems with larger inter-rod spacings, presenting a generalized picture in qualitative agreement with random sequential adsorption.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||ACS Publications||Copyright (published version):||2011 American Chemical Society||Keywords:||Molecular dynamics;Gold surfaces;Electric field;Electrophoretic deposition;Nanorod;P3HT;P3DT;Light-conducting polymer;Polymer-heterojunction solar cell||Subject LCSH:||Molecular dynamics
