Altering polymer morphology by intense terahertz wave irradiation

Abstract

In this presentation, we succeed in altering polymer morphology using terahertz (THz) wave irradiation. Pulsed THz waves generated by a free electron laser (FEL) were irradiated to a poly(3-hydroxybutylate) (PHB) / chloroform solution during solvent casting crystallization. Morphological observation shows the formation of micrometer-sized crystals via the… (More)
