The surface of Indium-tin-oxide (ITO) substrate was modified with a newly designed silane coupling molecule bearing azobenzene moiety. The silane coupling molecules formed self-assembled monolayer (SAM) on pretreated ITO surface. The SAM growth and coverage were quantified by contact angle measurement and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The silane coupling molecules improved the adhesion between the ITO surface and an amphiphilic block copolymer (BC) thin film, which consists of poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) and poly(methacrylate) (PMA) with azobenzene mesogens, because the azobenzene moieties of the SAM anchor the liquid crystalline PMA azobenzene domains of BC.
