Pat. 7: Method for polymerizing monomer units and/or oligomer units by means of infrared light pulses
Inventors: Heyne, A; Heyne, K
The invention relates to a method for polymerizing monomer units and/or oligomer units. Said method is characterized in that the energy required for polymerization is introduced by means of infrared light pulses into the monomer units and/or oligomer units to be polymerized, wherein the infrared light pulses have a wavelength of 2500 to 20000 nm, an intensity of more than 1014 W/m2, a duration of more than 8 fs and less than 3 ps, and a substantially linear polarization. The invention further relates to a corresponding use of infrared light pulses.
