Abstract : The morphology of crystalline polymers may be affected by conditions of preparations and greatly affects the mechanical response of the polymer. The arrangement of the crystals in spherulite-like aggregates and the interaction among these crystals influences their viscoelastic behavior. Evidence for the nature of the response of these crystalline aggregates may be obtained by optical techniques such as dynamic light scattering and x-ray diffraction. (Author)
