Abstract:We report a new method for the quantitative analysis of diOE use X-ray scattering by some disordered smectic phases. Computer simulations of diOE use X-ray scattering are compared with actual diOE raction patterns of a series of oriented liquid crystalline polymers TDI-C m C n . The simulation shows that both Bragg peaks (spots) and equidistant streaks (diOE use scatterings) are diOE racted by one smectic C-like structure in which each of the molecular chains is displaced from its mean position by a random dis… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
