  • Internal Status of Visibly Opaque Black Rubbers Investigated by Terahertz Polarization Spectroscopy: Fundamentals and Applications

    M. Okano, and S. Watanabe

    Polymers (Polymers)  11 ( 1 ) 9 2018.12

    Research paper (scientific journal), Joint Work, Accepted

     View Summary

    © 2018 by the authors. We discuss the internal status of rubber composites consisting of an insulating rubber matrix and conductive carbon black (CB) fillers ("black rubber") using polarization-sensitive terahertz time-domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS). The black rubber composites under stretched conditions exhibit a large optical anisotropy or birefringence in the terahertz regime. From systematic studies, it is revealed that the large birefringence of black rubbers is due to the orientation distribution of anisotropically shaped CB aggregates in the rubber matrix and the orientation distribution is strongly linked to the mechanical deformation of the black rubber. A model simulation based on this relation between deformation and reorientation allows conversion of the birefringence (optical) information into strain (mechanical) information. In addition, the spectroscopic information obtained using the THz-TDS technique is useful to evaluate the changes in the internal conductive filler network caused by the mechanical deformation. Our findings demonstrate that the terahertz polarization spectroscopy is a promising nondestructive inspection method for contactless investigation of the internal condition of black rubber composites.

     View Summary

    © 2018 by the author. This review focuses on several recent research activities regarding precise and fast polarization-sensitive terahertz time-domain spectroscopy systems for imaging purposes, and explains three interesting application examples. Owing to modulation techniques that have recently been developed for the evaluation of the instantaneous terahertz electric-field (E-field) vector, fast and precise terahertz polarization imaging becomes feasible. This terahertz technology enables high-resolution surface topography, precise understanding of the spatial E-field vector distribution of the focused terahertz pulse, and examination of strain-induced birefringence in polymeric materials. These examples constitute a new application area of terahertz photonics with emphasis on both fundamental optics and industrial applications.

  • Inspection of internal filler alignment in visibly opaque carbon-black–rubber composites by terahertz polarization spectroscopy in reflection mode

    Okano M., Watanabe S.

    Polymer Testing (Polymer Testing)  72   196 - 201 2018.12

    ISSN  01429418

     View Summary

    © 2018 As the industrial utilization of polymeric materials is increasing owing to recent improvements in material durability and functionality, product safety becomes an important issue. Therefore, various inspection methods for polymeric materials are being developed. In this work, the rapid and non-destructive inspection of the averaged internal orientation of conductive carbon black fillers in rubber composites is demonstrated using a handmade high-speed terahertz polarization spectroscopy system that employs reflection geometry. From the birefringent information obtained from the black rubber sample (with arbitrary stretching condition), the internal orientation of the conductive fillers, which plays an essential role in the properties of the rubber composite, was determined. In addition, since data acquisition with the reflection method is fast, the spatially resolved measurement of the filler orientation could also be performed. The information of the internal orientation of the carbon black fillers allows verification of the condition of the rubber product.

  • Optical Response Change of Black Rubbers under Cyclic Deformation Investigated by Terahertz Polarization Spectroscopy

     View Summary

    © 2018 IEEE. We recently demonstrated the nondestructive and contactless inspection of visibly-opaque black rubbers with a conductive carbon fillers, which is required for the rubber industrial community, by terahertz polarization spectroscopy. Using our developed technique, in this work, the terahertz optical and mechanical properties of the black rubbers were simultaneously measured under cyclic deformation. The black rubbers show the hysteresis in the draw ratio dependence of the terahertz birefringence as well as the well-known hysteresis behavior in the stress. The result implies that the terahertz optical response of black rubbers have correlation with their mechanical properties.
