The surface plasmon technique was used to precisely and simultaneously record photopattern formation of p(DDA-tBVPC53) LB films. Minute changes in thickness were traced on the nanometer level. Thickness changed gradually during deep UV irradiation in air atmosphere. Combining this finding with spectroscopic observation by UV spectra gave detailed insight into photopattern formation. The etching resistance of polymer LB films was also determined.
