Paper Abstract

Some interesting problems encountered in the design of photosensitive systems in the area of imaging science are to extend the spectral sensitivity of the photoinitiating systems to the visible light emission. The design of efficient photosensitizers and photoinitiators is partly based on a better understanding of the basic mechanism that is involved. The time resolved laser absorption spectroscopy combined with steady state experiments appears as a very convenient tool to improve the efficiency of photoinitiating systems. The present paper is mainly concerned with a discussion of the excited state processes in selected examples of efficient photosensitive systems for laser induced polymerization reactions that are of interest e.g. in holographic recording or laser imaging.
