ABSTRACT
The article reports on the In-Situ Fiber Optic Polymer Reaction Monitor, developed by Foster Miller Inc. and Langley Research Center. The new technology directly measures the chemistry of various advanced composites using fiber optics which can sense IR spectra that fingerprint the integrity of the composite. This monitoring system is expected to help the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
