Polarization and Structural Transitions of Irradiated Vinylidene Fluoride-Trifluoroethylene Copolymer
E Balizer, A S. DeReggi, Dan A. Neumann, Fred B. Bateman
The structure and polarization of the 50 wt.% vinylidene fluoride-50 wt.% trifluoroethylene copolymer, a composition in the range that was first reported to show giant electrostriction after electron irradiation, has been studied by neutron scattering under an electric field. In addition, nonirradiated and irradiated samples were studied by thermal analysis and by the thermal pulse method. Both irradiation-induced melting-point and Curie-point depression and broadening were observed, but no field-induced reversible crystal-crystal conversion was observed in the irradiated specimens.
