Abstract:

The development of microstructure is unperturbed and in deformed polymer melts and solids has been studied. In much of the work the Oak Ridge 10-Meter SAXS Instrument has been used. For undeformed systems, results relate to the geometry and phase properties of the crystallizing material. For deformed systems, a complex sequence of events is described basically the rapid formation of fibrillar, imperfect crystals and their subsequent internal rearrangements. Mechanical property development is related to the observed changes. Author
