Abstract

A major advantage of thermotropic liquid crystal polymers (LCP) lies in their ability to be fabricated into three dimensional articles. The purpose of this study is to elucidate the solid state structure observed in injected molded LCP parts. It is shown that the structure of injection molded LCPs is best described by a hierarchical model comprised of distinct units ranging in size from millimeters to nanometers.
