    Abstract

    We studied morphology changes and physical properties of elongated natural rubber using atomic force microscopy. We found that the morphology and the distribution of the elastic modulus were related with extension ratios and that the assumption of affine deformation could not be applied. We will also show the influence of elongation history and discuss the detail in connection with macro-scale stress-strain curve.
