Determination of segmental orientation in stretched rubbery networks may serve to test the validity of elaborated models of rubberlike elasticity, in conjunction with stress-strain measurements.

As a preliminary, the recently proposed theory of segmental orientation of real networks with constraints on junctions is reviewed. Basic principles of fluorescence polarization technique and its application to investigation of molecular orientation of mobile, anisotropic networks are then described. Illustrative data on elasticity and orientation behaviors of cis-polyisoprene networks are consistent with theoretical predictions.
