The applicability of the spectral subtraction and polarization modulation techniques to analyze small segmental orientation changes in mechanical-vibrational spectroscopy of polymers has been evaluated. Unless special circumstances are considered, comparison of the two techniques does not provide an overwhelming advantage for modulation that would favor it over the simpler subtraction technique.
