Rather, he says, "the polarization detection is telling you that the framework is correct" and that the CMBR anisotropies really date from the universe's infancy.
These anisotropies of homo and copolymers resulted from the in-plane orientation of polymer chains during the imidization process, in which the principal polarization was along the chain axis.
COBE's discovery of CMB anisotropies did not come easily; the spots it saw differ from one another in temperature by only one part in 100,000 on average.
However, in the next round of experiments [28, 29, 30] temperature anisotropies were found.
The most important conclusion that can be drawn from the results of this work is that the crystallinity in regenerated cellulose is closely related to both microhardness and optical anisotropies.
In December 1992 this group announced that they had found anisotropies that agreed closely with the COBE data.
Values for the optical anisotropies of several monomer groups are found in Van Krevelen (18).
