After the mixing, the monomer mixture is applied on glass substrates by blade coating or screen printing.
To initiate the chain growing (polymerization) the produced films are irradiated for 10 minutes long with UV light (UV LED Spot Hönle, 405 nm). After this step a final post bake from the layers in the oven (150°C, 30 min.) is operated.
Light transmission measurements (UV-Vis) of the polymer matrix and roughness measurements complement the characterization.
