The application of neutron scattering to polymers has been extremely successful during the last two decades. This book presents, for the first time, both the theories and experimental examples which are needed to understand how these techniques can be applied. Now available in paperback forthe first time this book is specifically written to introduce the newcomer and non-expert to the experimental techniques and the basic theory necessary to understand the results.
Julia S. Higgins is at Imperial College, University of London. Henri C. Benoit is at Universite Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg.

Editorial Reviews

`...even if polymer physics achieves maturity this book will remain of lasting value as a lucid description of what neutron scattering can contribute to this kind of physics.'Contemporary Physics, 1998, volume 39, number 4
