A new method for data evaluation of small angle neutron scattering experiments and its application to amorphous polycarbonate

  • 104 Accesses

  • 51 Citations

Summary

The conformation of single chains in bulk polymer materials can be evaluated from coherent neutron scattering on mixtures of normal and deuterated polymers. It is shown that the single-chain structure factor can be also obtained from measurements of highly concentrated mixtures and the procedure of evaluation is described. The application to amorphous polycarbonate demonstrates the advantages of the method.
