Structure of Random Materials
Light scattering and small angle x-ray scattering results are reported for a variety of random materials. Random processes such as polymerization and aggregation account for the structure of these materials. Materials studied include linear and branched polymers, colloidal aggregates (prepared in solution, in flames and at an air-water interface), and composites. Although the concept of fractal geometry is essential to interpretation of the scattering curves, not all the materials show fractal character.
