We simulate at the atomistic scale the layer-by-layer growth of a four layers thin film of poly(diallyl dimethyl ammonium chloride)/poly(styrene sulfonate sodium salt) oligomers adsorbed on a silica substrate. The simulation is intended to provide atomistic details on the structure of a swollen multilayer in solutions with different concentrations of added salt ions. The scale of the simulated system has been chosen to produce, at a minimum computing cost, a reasonable estimation of some selected mesoscopic structural parameters that are measurable with current experimental techniques.
