Several techniques for characterizing semiconducting polymer order on different length scales are presented, including (1) differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), (2) solid state nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), (3) transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and (4) grazing incidence scattering. Since the behaviour of highly conjugated polymers can differ distinctly from the more classic, highly saturated polymers for which these techniques were originally developed, e.g., polyethylene, the hazards and pitfalls associated with applying these techniques to semiconducting polymers will be discussed where appropriate. It will be assumed that the reader is familiar with the techniques being discussed; however, references will be made to more fundamental introductions to the techniques as well.
