Title: Metal-containing photopolymer resins generated by reduction of dissolved metal salts

Abstract

According to one embodiment, a three-dimensional structure includes: at least one photopolymer having at least one metal dispersed throughout at least portions of a bulk of the structure. The structure is characterized by features having a horizontal and/or vertical feature resolution in a range from several hundred nanometers to several hundred microns. The portions of the bulk throughout which metal is dispersed may optionally be selectively determined. In more embodiments, the structure may have electroless plated metal formed on surfaces thereof, alternatively or in addition to the metal dispersed throughout the bulk of the structure. The electroless plating may be achieved without the use of a surface activation bath. Corresponding methods for forming various embodiments of such three dimensional structures are also disclosed.
