This paper was presented at the 4th International Conference on Electric Charge in Solid Insulators (CSC4), 2-6 July 2001 and published as pp. 189-192 of the Proceedings. The final version may be available from http://www.vide.org/Dielectric breakdown of epoxies is preceded by a light emission from the solid state material, so-called electroluminescence. Very little is known however on the luminescence properties of epoxy. The aim of this paper is to derive information that can be used as a basis to understand the nature of the excited states and their involvement in electrical degradation processes
