High Pressure X-Ray Studies of Polyethylene
High-pressure x-ray diffraction and optical studies of polymers using the gasketed diamond-anvil cell have been carried out by several investigators [1–5]. Crystallization and crystal phase transitions can be observed directly using these methods. However, there are two serious problems involved in the utilization of the gasketed diamond-anvil cell for such studies. These are Variation of pressure with temperature and the accurate measurement of pressure.
