Probing Polymer Material Properties on the Nanometer Scale

  • U. Schmidt (a1), W. Ibach (a1) and O. Hollricher (a1)

Extract

Polymers play an essential role in modern materials science. Because of the wide variety of mechanical and chemical properties of polymers, they are used in nearly every industry. Knowledge about their physical and chemical properties on the nanometer scale is often required. However, some details about the phase-separation process in polymers are difficult to study with conventional characterization techniques because these methods cannot chemically differentiate phases with good spatial resolution without damage, staining, or preferential solvent washing.
