Abstract
This project will investigate the use of Laser Raman Infra-Red Fiber Optic Sensor to remotely determine the chemical characteristics of advanced composite materials. The proposed research will investigate a means to measure and manage the composition and cure state of the resin matrix during an autoclave or repair process. Fourier transform Raman spectroscopy using near infrared excitation (1064 nm) from the Nd:YAG laser will be used.
