Richard S. Stein mainly focuses on Polymer, Polymer chemistry, Optics, Light scattering and Crystallization. Richard S. Stein usually deals with Polymer and limits it to topics linked to Liquid crystal and Polyester. His study in Polymer chemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Small-angle X-ray scattering, Concentration effect, Polycarbonate and Analytical chemistry.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Condensed matter physics and Deformation. His Light scattering study is focused on Scattering in general. His research investigates the connection between Crystallization and topics such as Crystallography that intersect with problems in Deformation.

Between 1990 and 2015, his most popular works were:

  • Holographic Data Storage in Amorphous Polymers (135 citations)
  • Phase transformation in quenched mesomorphic isotactic polypropylene (110 citations)
  • Critical Analysis of the Phase-Behavior of Poly(Epsilon-Caprolactone) (PCl)/Polycarbonate (PC) Blends (107 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Polymer
  • Optics
  • Organic chemistry

His primary areas of investigation include Polymer chemistry, Crystallization, Analytical chemistry, Polyethylene and Small-angle X-ray scattering. His Crystallization study incorporates themes from Crystallography, Supercooling and Phase. He has included themes like Radius of gyration, Small-angle neutron scattering, Scattering and Caesium in his Analytical chemistry study.

His work carried out in the field of Polyethylene brings together such families of science as Deuterium and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Light scattering, Crystallinity and Lamellar structure in addition to Small-angle X-ray scattering.
