Abstract

In [1,2] an error (by a factor of 1000) in the diffusion rate of monomer in a photopolymer material used by the authors of [3], is presented. In [3] no errors are identified in our analysis and our physical evidence is not addressed. It is implied that our model and our results are disproven by the results in the papers referenced in [3]. In fact these papers do not provide any such quantitative evidence. The observations made regarding the significance of the authors’ contributions, in particular the validity of their model and the practical importance of their material are also discussed.
