The paper presents comparison of spectral characteristics of PMMA samples doped with new photoluminescence monomer dimethacrylate derivative of naphthalene-2,7-diol (2,7-NAF.DM). After excitation by UV radiation monomer emits yellow-green light. One PMMA sample was doped in bulk thermal polymerization process. The second was doped by diffusion from methanol solution. It was observed shift of emission spectrum in sample doped in bulk thermal polymerization. Both may be used in polymer UV sensors.
