Laser polymer microchemistry processes are widely used in photomicrolithography, electronics and many other high technology industries. Due to the complicated nature of the laser-material interactions and the diversity and complexity of the polymer thin-film materials, the fundamental mechanisms of these processes are poorly understood. Here we are interested in laser- assisted processes where an image is produced by chemically altering a micrometer sized spot of a thin film by a laser pulse.
