    Abstract

    The conformational defects in high-strain, electrostrictive polymers were discussed. The microstructure of the transformed copolymer could be viewed as a distribution of polar micro regions embedded in a flexible polymer network. The results suggested that during crystal growth of the terpolymers, the resulting lamellae may possess a greater degree of conformational disorder and hence more pronounced relaxor behavior.
