Paper Abstract

The applications of lasers in polymer photochemistry spring from the meeting point of two fascinating research fields: photopolymers and development of laser techniques. Lasers can be used as irradiation sources or in probing devices. In the present paper, we mostly discuss the investigation of the primary processes involved in the excited states of photosensitive organic molecules -- photoinitiators, photosensitizers, photoinitiator combinations -- that can be used for laser induced polymerization, laser writing, or holographic recording.
