Time-Resolved Three-Dimensional Microscopy of Laser Photothermal Imaging Processes
Abstract:Fundamental mechanisms of exposure by near-infrared (IR) laser pulses, of multilayer laser photothermal imaging media used as offset lithographic printing plates in computer-to-press or computer-to-plate applications, are investigated with time-resolved three-dimensional optical microscopy, with imaging pulses in the 1-ns to 10-μs range. Different behavior of different layers was observed depending on the pulse duration and pulse energy.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
