Paper Abstract

Mechanoluminescence (ML), the emission of light from certain crystals induced by mechanical stress, is being considered for structural health monitoring (SHM), potentially offering passive and real-time distributed detection systems. We measured the mechanoluminescent radiance of ZnS:Mn, a crystal with a relatively strong ML emission, embedded in a matrix of transparent polyurethane under different loading and fracture. This data is invaluable for the design and performance evaluation of ML sensor systems.
