Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

In this paper, we present some analytical results in the development of the classical Bower theory of Raman scattering in the partially oriented polymers. We consider more general case of arbitrary molecular orientation instead of Bower's assumption about sample having three mutually perpendicular two-fold axes of rotational symmetry. We also present here the experimental data on the study of structure of one-way-drawn polyethylene tapes and polysulfone hollow fiber membranes.
