    The layer correlations in main-chain smectic liquid-crystal polymer and elastomer systems have been studied using high-resolution X-ray scattering. In contrast to side-chain smectic polymers, in main-chain systems the polymer chains are oriented parallel to the layer normal. As a result they...

    In this study, we discuss the origins of decomposition of the glassy phase in Al-rare earth melt-spun amorphous alloys. The small angle X-ray scattering results indicate that the amorphous phase undergoes phase separation by spinodal mechanism prior to devitrification. We recall a concept of...
