23_35/2011Block Copolymers: Piezoelectric Properties of Non-Polar Block Copolymers (Adv. Mater. 35/2011)

An unusually large response of block copolymers to electric fields and its remarkable temperature dependence are reported by Alexander Böker and co-workers on page 4047. Representative small angle X-ray scattering patterns for lamellar block copolymer solutions in the absence (isotropic, dark signal on white background) and presence of an electric field (anisotropic, light on dark) are shown.
