Abstract: Abstract The cure reactions of epoxy‐diamine and its composites are monitored in‐situ using the intrinsic fluorescence of the aromatic diamine, diaminodiphenyl sulfone (DDS). With a fiberoptic fluorimeter, in‐situ cure monitoring was performed via a single fiber, distal‐end probe, in neat epoxy as well as in commercial grade prepregs containing graphite fibers and DDS curing agent. The prepregs were investigated during multiply lamination in an oven. The fluorescence excitation spectra were obtained by emitti…
