Quenched Melts
Branched polymers behave rheologically different from linear chains. Here, time-dependent phenomena at several length scales can be decoupled by freezing-in states. Quenched melts of partially labeled branched copolymers can therefore be studied by insitu SANS and extensional rheology to locally investigate structural relaxations on different hierarchical levels. The topological tube is now intimately related to the relaxation of stress.
