The nanocentrosymmetric structures of copolymers are analyzed by field continuous models. Results reveal that the ground state of a system composed of dipolar supermolecular aggregates that interact with a surface is a periodic domain structure with a net macroscopic polarization. The Monte Carlo simulations for some hexagonal lattices and smectic-A structures also give stripe structures with a similar λ dependence on film thickness.
