Short Range Order in Polymers within Neutrons' Eyeshot

Title variants
Languages of publication
The paper presents a short review of neutron scattering results obtained during investigation of short range order in bulk polymers. Neutron scattering proves exceptionally powerful in this type of study through (i) large penetration depth of bulk samples, (ii) isotope sensitivity, and (iii) the use of spin polarization technique. The examples provided deliver results that can hardly be obtained from e.g. X-ray diffraction.
