Abstract: The electrophoretic deposition of polystyrene/divinylbenzene (PS/DVB) star polymer-europium sulphide (EuS) nanocomposite films from a colloidal suspension is reported. Liquid suspension, containing both the PS/DVB star polymer and EuS nanocrystals were prepared by separately injecting dichloromethane (DCM) based solutions of EuS nanocrystals and of the star polymers, respectively, into a stratified liquid combination of hexane and DCM. Scanning electron microscopy illustrates images of the dependence of surfac…
