    • Abstract


      Light induced fabrication of complex surface relief structures on azobenzene functionalized polymers is reported. Large class of side chain and main chain polymers can be utilized to record these relief structures. The recording and erasure process are strongly dependent on the polarization. Possible transport mechanism of polymer chains well below the glass transition temperature due to photoinduced effect is discussed.
