In summary, this work investigated confinement and interfacial effects on the relaxation dynamics of polymer at the glass transition (T g), above the glass transition (alpha-relaxation dynamics), and below the glass transition (physical aging).Silica nanospheres (colloidal silica in methyl ethyl ketone, Nissan Chemical Industries, reported diameter of 10-15 nm) were used as received. ... Resulting films were at least 1 I¼m thick as determined using a Tencor P10 profilometer.
