Can anyone advise me how to visualise birefringence of a peptide in 
solution drawn up into a capillary tube. The peptide polymerises and I am 
told that if it has birefringence when drawn into a capillary it is 
possible to obtain useful x-ray data. The problem is that I don't know 
what I'm looking for or how to look for it!
