University of Cambridge, Pembroke Street, Cambridge. UK (Received 2 April 1991; revised 11 November 1991) X-ray observations have been made during high temperature shear of a liquid crystalline copolyester. Whilst being sheared above the polymer melting point, a sharp crystallite diffraction peak develops. This peak grows in intensity as the shear rate increases and disappears on cessation of shear. It is associated with the shear stabilization of crystallites, presumably of the non-periodic-layer type.
