Abstract: Abstract Interest in the development of polymeric materials for high temperature, electronic and microelectronic applications has led to an increasing number of new polymers. Many of these polymers have complex organic ring structures and semirigid backbones, characteristics that have posed some difficulties for structural analysis. The purpose of this paper is to test and compare two practical nondestructive optical techniques, polarized optical microscopy and polarized refractometry, for the determination o…
