Wavelength-Shift and Fluorescent Probes for Cure Monitoring of Resins

Published

Author(s)

Francis W. Wang, R E. Lowry

Abstract

The peak frequencies of the absorption and fluorescence spectra of some fluorescent probes dissolved in resins are sensitive ton the polarity and the local viscosity. The peak absorption and fluorescence frequencies of wavelength-shift fluorescent probes were measured to monitor the cure of an epoxy resin, an acrylic resin, and a model dental resin.
