Abstract: Abstract The phase behavior of polymer blends under simple shear flow has been studied using a custom‐designed rheo‐optical system consisting of a two‐dimensional small‐angle light scattering (SALS) device incorporated into a conventional rheometer. Two‐dimensional SALS images were gathered for model polymer blend systems with different quiescent phase behavior: polystyrene/polyisobutylene (PS/PIB) that exhibits upper critical solution temperature phase behavior and polystyrene/poly(vinyl methyl ether) (PS/PV…
