Determination of the parameters of lamellar structure of semicrystalline polymers
using a computer program SAXSDAT (in English)
Polimery 2011, No 9, 662
A computer program SAXDAT for the analysis of small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) curves of semicrystalline polymers is described. The program is based on a lamellar stack model of polymer structure. In the program, the parameters of stacks can be determined from one-dimensional correlation function calculated as a Fourier transform of intensity distribution or by model calculations which consist in fitting of a theoretical intensity distribution function to the experimental curve. The program can be applied to single curves as well as to big sets of curves obtained from time resolved experiments. Both point and slit collimation recording systems are acceptable.
Key words: small angle X-ray scattering, correlation function, semicrystalline polymers, lamellar structure, computer program
