This report encompasses the research work done on the Applied Research Project 14/96, titled : Accelerated Radiation Curing of Polymers / Composite for Microelectronics / Aerospace Applications." It encompasses the study of the curing of thermosetting polymers as used in the microelectroncis industries and aerospace industries. The radiation process considered for this project include both the electron beam curing process and the microwave curing process. Basic to both processes is the underlying cure kinetics of the polymer system. This include the study of the gelation process, the conversion and attainment of higher glass transition temperatures, and the modeling of the mechanism for cure kinetics.
