FT-IR spectroscopy is a fast and informative method for the characterization of transient structural changes during deformation and relaxation processes of polymers. These rheo- optical techniques were used to determine changes in orientation, conformation and state of order during elongation, recovery and stress relaxation in poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) at various temperatures and sample geometries. Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is more advantageous for applications in industrial process-control, since light-fiber optics can be used and a wider range of film thicknesses can be investigated. Frequently, the NIR region yields less information than the mid-infrared region and it is necessary to calibrate MIR results to NIR spectra by chemometric methods (e.g., partial least squares).
