Terminally attached or end grafted chains can exist in a variety of surface configurations. These structures can be described by the volume fraction of segments normal to the interface and depend on several factors including the graft density, the chain length and the thermodynamic interactions of the chain segments with the solvent and the interface. In this paper small-angle neutron scattering [SANS] is used to investigate these surface volume fraction profiles.
