Impact of initiation species on index distribution in diffusion photopolymers


Models of the index response of diffusion photopolymers typically assume that polymerization is proportional to optical intensity. However, common radical initiators self-terminate. This reduces the polymerization rate and has been shown in steady state to result in polymerization that is proportional to the square root of intensity. We examine the impact… (More)
