                                                   DECISION ON APPEAL                                                  
             This is an appeal under 35 U.S.C.  134 from the examiner’s refusal to allow                              
             claims 1, 2, 6, 8 through 10, 13, and 14 which are all the claims remaining in the                        
             application.                                                                                              


                                                     THE  INVENTION                                                    
             The invention is directed to a photocurable composition sensitive to visible light                        
             and near infrared radiation comprising 100 parts by weight of a polymerizable                             
             unsaturated compound, 1-40 parts by weight of a metal arene, 0.05-20 parts by                             
             weight of a squarylium dye and 0.1-20 parts by weight of selected N,N-dialkylaniline                      
             sensitizers.

             Claims 1 is illustrative of appellant’s invention and is reproduced below.                                
                    1. A photocurable composition highly sensitive to near infrared radiation and                      
             visible light having a wavelength of greater than 550 nm, comprising:                                     
                    100 parts by weight of a radical polymerizable unsaturated group-bearing                           
             compound;                                                                                                 
                    1-40 parts by weight of a metal arene compound;                                                    

                                                          1
