A fluorescent protein is implemented by Nico Bruns and co-workers on page 2701 as a force-responsive molecular sensor at the fiber-resin interface in glass-fiber reinforced composites. Micrometer-scale damage, such as fiber fractures and fiber matrix debonding, is reported by loss of yellow fluorescence in the damaged areas due to a force-induced unfolding of the protein.
