Investigation of the structure induced by processing of traditional polymers for packaging application (such as LDPE or HDPE) as well as new cellulose and ligno-cellulose based materials. Characterization include SAXS/WAXS imaging, birefringence, STXM, and CT.
This project is focused on SAXS measurements to study structuring of fibrilar systems under flow, such as 3D printing, electro spinning and fibre spinning. The project is in the framework of the feasibility study on the ForMAX beamline at MAX IV. Controlled alignment of for example cellulose nanofibrils is of high interest, since their mechanical
