    The project is concerned with the development of polymeric coatings for use as remotely-sensed non-contact strain gauges whereby the strain is measured using stress-induced Raman band shifts. The aim is to measure local strain on the micron level and so it is necessary to use materials with microstructures in the nanometer size range. Nanostructured coating materials based upon polyurethane polymers with low vol. fractions (
