Abstract

The influence of introduced ZnO nanoparticles on thermal degradation processes is investigated for holographic nanocomposites based on photoinduced displacement of the nanoparticles in a polymeric matrix. It is shown that the thermal stability of the material increases as a result of the introduction of nanoparticles, which alter the depolymerization temperatures, in general displacing the decomposition of the polymeric components toward higher temperatures. An effective method is proposed for improving the thermomechanical properties of holographic polymers by introducing ZnO nanoparticles as a filler.
