Wide Angle X-ray Scattering (WAXS) techniques are used to characterise the molecular and the morphological structures of polymers. The available X-ray equipment (Seifert ID 3000) can be used to determine the following:

  1. Determination of the degree of crystallinity

  2. Determination of crystal modifications

  3. Determination of orientations

Micro computer tomography (micro-CT) generates three-dimensional images of materials such as polymers, ceramics, glasses, metals, and biological specimens with a resolution down to submicron level. The non-destructive micro-CT is mainly used for:

  1. Characterisation of foam cell morphologies (average cell size, cell size distribution, open or closed cell structure)

  2. Characterisation of particles (size, shape and distribution) in polymers and polymer composites

  3. Analysis of inclusions, pores and etc.
