Course description and aims

In order to study the structure and properties of crystalline polymers, it is essential to acquire the ability to analyze the structure and properties by using various analytical methods. This course focuses on the small-angle X-ray scattering that is an essential technique to characterize the structure and properties of crystalline polymers. This course also focuses on the tensor that is important for characterization of physical properties of anisotropic materials, and exercise problems related to tensor calculations are given and explained. Topics include the evaluation method of molecular mobilities of polymers by pulse NMR and the properties of particle-filled polymer composites.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, student will be able to:
1) Have a fundamental understanding of small-angle X-ray scattering that is an essential technique to characterize the structure and properties of crystalline polymers.
2) Have an understanding of tensor that is important for characterization of physical properties of anisotropic materials, and carry out tensor calculations, such as coordinate transformation of tensor.
