Abstract

Raman mapping by point illumination of polymer surfaces is discussed with examples taken from the plasma treatment of polypropylene (PP) and subsequent grafting of polystyrene (PS). Maps can be constructed for surface properties such as crystallinity, blend components and distribution of grafted PS. The Raman sampling volume was estimated for confocal operation using a 50x objective lens.

11 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™
12 citations in Web of Science®

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
