Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Orientation correlations in a quiescently quenched, lamellar block copolymer were examined by a combination of depolarized light scattering and transmission electron microscopy. These experiments reveal exponential correlation functions with characteristic lengths that depend on the thermal history of the sample. The correlation lengths obtained from light scattering and electron microscopy are in reasonable agreement.
