Dissemination of IT for the Promotion of Materials Science (DoITPoMS)



On completion of this TLP you should:

  • Understand the concept of crystallinity in the context of polymeric materials
  • Be able to recognise and describe spherulites in semicrystalline polymers
  • Understand the mechanical behaviour of a polymer subjected to a uniaxial tensile stress, and the effects this has on the polymer's optical properties.
