|Summary||Localised stress/ strain measurements in polymer based composites can now be made using a Laser Raman sensor. In this case the stress sensor is the reinforcing fibre of the composite and the detector is the Raman spectrometer. Raman stress/ strain sensor has been employed for unidirectional, as well as, multidirectional composites. The relationships between the local fibre stress or strain obtained from the Raman sensor and the far field stress or strain measured conventionally, are established.
