Positron (e⁺) and positronium (Ps) annihilation processes in polymers are studied by positron age-momentum correlation spectroscopy, which can sensitively probe momentum distributions of e⁺, p-Ps, and o-Ps. For polyether sulfone and ethylene tetrafluoroethylene copolymer belonging to oxygen-containing polymers (O group) and fluorine-containing polymers (F group), respectively, significant effects of positron trapping by polar element are observed. The Doppler profile of o-Ps pick-off annihilation is strongly influenced by F atoms, giving rise to anomalous broadening. The results are discussed together with our previous data of the S-I₃ correlation in order to explore the feasibility of chemical analysis around the free volumes by age-momentum correlation spectroscopy.
