Paper Abstract

We studied the process of formation of 3D polymer structures by initiating polymerization with laser radiation. Polymers based on such monomers as methyl methacrylate and ethyleneglycolmonomethacrylate were investigated. Polymerization was initiated by the fourth harmonic radiation of a Q-switched Nd:YAP laser without any specially introduced initiator. Initiation is provided by the direct photolysis of monomers. At this wavelength the absorption of monomers is significantly higher than the absorption of corresponding polymer. It results in bleaching of the media during polymerization.
