X-ray Diffraction Pattern from a Newly-synthesized Diblock Copolymer

Image courtesy Sasha MyersX-ray diffraction pattern from a newly-synthesized diblock copolymer containing a linear (high-density) polyethylene block. As designed, the material self-assembles into a lamellar nanostructure, with layers of polyethylene alternating with layers of glassy polyvinylcyclohexane. Macroscopic alignment of the structure was achieved by planar extensional flow in a lubrication channel die.
