Nonisothermal Melt Crystallization Behavior of Semicrystalline Polymers Monitored Using an In Situ Fluorescence Technique
Key words:Polymer: A synthetic substance composed of large molecules in a series of long, repeating chains. Semicrystalline Thermoplastic: A type of opaque polymer that has a distinct, ordered and strong molecular structure, creating a defined melting point. Fluorophore: A type of dye bonded to the semicrystalline thermoplastics used in fluorescence testing to re-emit light upon excitation. Fluorescence: The property of absorbing shorter wavelengths of light while emitting longer wavelengths of light. Amorphous: Not crystallized.
