Quantification of dispersion and distribution of carbon nanotubes in polymer composites using microscopy techniques

S. Pegel, T. Villmow and P. Pötschke,     Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden, Germany

Abstract:

Different stereological approaches have been applied to micrographs of light microscopy and transmission electron microscopy to estimate the degree of carbon nanotube dispersion in polymer composites at different length scales. Quantitative information about the spatial relationships between individual carbon nanotubes has been obtained by means of the spherical contact distribution function and a Boolean fibre model. The correlation function has been used to gain an orientation factor as a measure of carbon nanotube ...
