According to ScienceDirect, “Photopolymerization is a technique that uses light (visible or ultraviolet) to initiate and propagate a reaction to form a linear or cross-linked polymer structure.”

It’s a significant area of focus for researchers and developers, as it allow for production of materials with customized properties.

In microelectronics, for example, scientists are able to manipulate the physical properties of polymer networks to improve adhesion and solvent resistance by exposing the material to light sources.

If you think that’s impressive, continue reading for three other interesting photopolymerization applications.
