Plasma-deposited Polymer Films I. Low-Angle X-Ray Study
In the reported experiments, a low-angle x-ray scattering technique has been applied to determine the submicrostructure of plasma-formed polyethylene and polystyrene. the plasma-formed polymers appear to closely approximate a ″filler-binder″ structure where polymer spheres constitute the filler material and a lower-density polymer, the binder. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) micrographs confirm the spherical diameters predicted by the low-angle x-ray scattering data.
