Doctoral course at EPFL Lausanne – Science and technology of UV-induced polymerization

EPFL, Lausanne - Room DIA004
29th January 2020

Prof. Marco Sangermano, Dr. Yves Leterrier (LPAC-IMX-EPFL), Dr. Sara Dalle Vacche (Politecnico di Torino) and Dr. Eric Nouzille (Sicpa SA) will hold a course on and of UV-induced polymerization at EPFL of Lausanne on January 29-31, 2020 (Room DIA004).

The course presents the main classes of and key factors which control photopolymerization. It explains how to select the right formulation and optimize processes for a given application. Standard and novel characterization methods, new materials and new applications are also presented.


  1. Introduction to radiation processing
  2. Fundamentals of free-radical systems
  3. Components of photocurable formulations: photoinitiators, monomers, additives
  4. Analytical methods: state of the art and new developments
  5. Structure-property relations in UV curable
  6. Advances in UV-induced polymerization research
  7. Application to UV inks and coatings, nanostructures and devices
