We investigate photopolymerization of ultraviolet (UV) curing resins by optical vortex light irradiation with a wavelength of 405nm. The cured polymer acts as a waveguide, which is twisted either clockwise or counterclockwise about the beam axis by the incident orbital angular momentum (OAM) field. When polymerized with higher order optical vortex, the polymeric fiber is branched to a bundle of fibers.
