Paper Abstract

The development of new infrared transmitting optical fibers with low optical losses, sufficient mechanical strength, and temperature range to meet the demanding conditions of many process environments -- and the availability of improved, ruggedized low-cost FTIR spectrometers -- have made in situ FTIR measurements possible. This paper discusses the development of a mid-IR tapered infrared transmitting optical fiber for monitoring the cure of epoxy resins.
