The scaling that we have adopted here also enables us to make contact with some aspects of biaxiality in the low-temperature regime, which we discuss next.
There is a subtle mechanism by which biaxiality can enable defects that cost less free energy than isotropic cores.
In the center of each defect, a negative uniaxial order along [[??].sub.z] is established and is surrounded by a rim of a maximal degree of biaxiality. By increasing the external electric field strength, we obtained qualitatively different configurations for R/[xi].sub.f] = 10 (Figure 5(b)) and for R/[xi].sub.f] = 100 (Figure 5(c)).
The NP acts as a source of elastic distortions that result in locally induced biaxiality.

The first remark is that the biaxiality ratio B = [e.sup.*.sub.r]/[e.sup.*.sub.z] is independent of the temperature change because each strain component is proportional to [DELTA]T.

It was found that annealed uniaxially stretched films exhibited only one melting peak around 224 [degrees] C, similar to the position to that of the unannealed precursors, while annealed biaxially stretched films showed two distinct melting peaks in which the lower melting peak increases in magnitude with increasing biaxiality. Generally, the higher melting endotherm behaved similarly to that of unannealed precursors at the same stretch ratios.
At [[Lambda].sub.MD] above 3 increasing biaxiality causes a decrease in crystallinity and thus disrupts the packing efficiency of the chains.
For [[Lambda].sub.MD] above 3, increasing biaxiality makes the poles of the 100[Alpha] reflection concentrate in the ND, especially for equal biaxial conditions, while the 010[Alpha] poles spread in the MD-TD plane.
