Abstract:

The research conducted under the Contract Nonr 401 44 is entitled Polymers at High Pressure. Interference Microscopy has been developed in this connection as a service tool to analyze the morphology of polymer samples crystallized at elevated pressure. The results obtained were so satisfactory, however, that it was also undertaken to use this tool for studies of morphology of atmospheric pressure crystal lized polymers and an investigation of the thermodynamics of melting of polymer single crystal lamellae. In this thesis, the different kinds ofinterference microscopy as applied to polymer research in this laboratory are described. The principal polymer used is a linear polyethy lene. Author
