New MONET Publication in ACS Macro Letters

A team from the Olsen and Johnson labs use small angle neutron scattering to measure single chain radii of gyration of end-linked polymer gels before and after cross-linking to calculate the prestrain, which is the ratio of the average chain size in a cross-linked network to that of a free chain in solution. Prestrain measurements reported serve as a point of reference for network theories that rely on this parameter for the calculation of mechanical properties.
