Hue-based quantification of mechanochromism towards a cost-effective detection of mechanical strain in polymer systems

Author affiliations

Abstract

HSV is a digital colour space easily accessible by the transformation of RGB images. In this work, the hue parameter H was used to assess mechanically induced colour changes of the aggregation-sensitive fluorescent dye 4,4′-bis-(2-benzoxazolyl)stilbene (BBS), thus implementing a cheap and reliable method for the detection of mechanical deformation in a polymer matrix.
