UV irradiation of thin poly(octyl methacrylate) films was established to produce anomalies in their magnetic and electric properties similar to those observed in thin films of atactic poly(propylene) and poly(dimethylsiloxane). Treatment by UV light leads to the formation of ferromagnetically ordered domains in initial diamagnetic and dielectric samples and gives rise to a marked electric conductance in the direction perpendicular to the plane of the sample.
