In this work we present an investigation of star‐like polymers in various architectures with the use of a recently developed numerical self‐consistent mean field theory. The polymers have been previously studied experimentally and the comparison of the adsorption with our method shows excellent agreement. The volume fraction and details about the inner structure of the formed brushes indicate that as the number of branches is increased the number of adsorbed polymers is significantly reduced. Mixtures of different kind of star polymers show interesting behavior as the more branched polymers try to develop in the outer region of brush. We also show information about the distribution of the free ends.
