The problem of destruction of a thin polymer film due to heating by a beam of radiant energy is studied. The multistage nature of chemical conversion and dependence of optical properties on depth of decomposition is considered. Analytical estimates are given for the time characteristics of film ignition and its dependence on beam thickness and heating intensity. Optical phenomena related to the chemical reactions are observed by a numerical method.
