Abstract

Application of photon correlation spectroscopy (PCS) to polymer dynamics dates back to the inception of the technique in the early 1960s. Early work demonstrated that the self-diffusion constant of large molecules could be obtained by application of PCS to dilute solutions. In addition, some early work dealt with the initial concentration dependence of the diffusion constant. Nevertheless, major advances in the understanding of the dynamics of chain molecules has only occurred in the last few years. In this period there has been a dramatic increase in he amount and significance of PCS activity in polymer physics. The purpose of this review is to summarize and hopefully justify this more recent work.
