Application Note fo Leica EM ACE600 – A solid understanding of polymer property-structure relationships is critical to improve and shorten development routes to new products. A direct way to determine correlations between structure and mechanical properties is provided by electron microscopy. Electron microscopy techniques have an important advantage over other methods, as they can provide local information at high spatial resolution. However, a major problem with polymers is their inherent lack of contrast.
