Laser-Initiated Polymerization of Multifunctional Acrylates: Repetition Rate Effects on Percent Conversion
Polymers and High Performance Materials
The pulsed laser-initiated polymerization of multifunctional acrylates has been investigated using a photocalorimeter. In the case where a limited number of pulses are delivered to the sample, the extent of conversion decreases as the laser repetition rate increases. However, for a large number of pulses, higher repetition rates do not lead to decreases in the overall degree of conversion.
