Abstract

Femtosecond, sub-ablation threshold UV photo-modification of poly(methyl methacrylate) is explored. Volatile fragment analysis (thermal desorption gas chromatography - mass spectrometry) and molecular weight distribution monitoring (size exclusion chromatography) suggest direct backbone cleavage and monomer formation.
