Paper Abstract

The spectral sensitivity and the enhancement of the energetic sensitivity are important points to the optimization of photopolymerizable materials. We have studied a polymeric system based on polyvinylalcohol as binder, monomers as acrylamide and dihydroxyethylenbisacrylamide and a photoinitiator system composed by triethanolamine and methylene blue. This system was irradiated with an Ar+ laser tuned at 514 nm, where this material do not absorb. Obtaining diffraction efficiencies of 55% with an energetic expositions of 500 mJcm-2. A possible mechanism of initiation of the photopolymerization process has been proposed by the presence of semireduced methylene blue that has an absorption band at 520 nm.
