"The AFM-IR allowed us to get the β-form to show up in the fibers for the first time."

Dr. Rabolt used the AFM-IR to explore the correlation between structure, processing, and chain orientation/crystallinity in single nanofibers and reveal concentration of crystalline and amorphous components of phase separated polymer blends.

Webinar Topics

  • Recent innovations leading to monolayer sensitivity
  • Applications in materials and life sciences using AFM-IR
  • Special focus of AFM-IR on single nanofibers

    • Correlation between structure, processing and chain orientation/crystallinity
    • Different processing protocols that alter the concentration of the stable α-crystalline form and the metastable β-crystalline form
    • Existence of core-shell structure in single nanofibers
