Fiber Optic Sensors for Resin Flow and Composite Cure Monitoring
This section focuses on the developments done at the author Institution on Fiber Optic Sensors (FOS) to monitor resin flow and cure; other partners were simultaneously working on dielectrics and ultrasonic sensors, enabling a compari-son of resúlts and characteristics of the different kinds of sensors.
