Table of Contents

Introduction ; Neutron Production and Detection: the nuts and bolts ; Spectrometers and what they mean ; Theoretical basis of scattering ; Labelling with deuterium - how, why, and when to use ; Form factors ; Interacting systems ; Experimental examples of structural studies ; Dynamics ; Neutron reflection for studying surfaces and interfaces ; Glossary of symbols


This book contains a systematic development of theoretical and experimental aspects of scattering from polymers. The principles presented here can be applied to all forms of scattering such as X-rays and light, not just neutrons . . . this book has the potential of being of great value . . . students who read this book will obtain a better grasp of the principles of scattering from polymers. * Polymer News *
. . . the very text we have been waiting for . . . the authors have written the perfectly-timed book, and they have aimed it at just the right audience - the large community of problem- or product-driven, molecular-based engineers and scientists who are neither specialists in, nor practitioners of, scattering physics. As neutron scattering experiments continue to become an integral component of the pursuit of new and otherwise unattainable information, members of this community will find the text by Higgins and Benoit to be essential reading. * AIChE Journal *
. . . a good recommendation to newcomers and even to experienced researchers . . . * Neutron News * fulfils the need for a single text with sufficient detail, rigour and illustrative applications on the use of neutron beams in polymer research . . . many...will find this book useful . . . I found the introduction an excellent precis of the basics of neutron scattering and the information that can be obtained using this technique. The material can be used in non-specialist undergraduate courses because it is concise, informative and not overburdened with unnecessary detail . . . [it] contain[s] the essence of small angle scattering from polymers and will benefit both beginners and veterans . . . The discussion of main chain motion of polymers in solution and melt is excellent and neatly encapsulates current views on linear polymers . . . This is a book that all polymer scientists should have . . . As an introduction to neutron scattering from polymers it has no competition. * Chemistry in Britain, August 1997 *
a good recommendation to newcomers, and even to experienced researchers in the field of soft condensed matter * Peter Linder, Neutron News, Vol. 6, No. 1, 1995 *
...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 *
