Time-Resolved Microscopy of Lasers Photothermal Imaging

Today, computers direct powerful lasers to expose laser photothermal imaging materials2 that directly produce printing plates with minimal processing (computer-to-plate imaging). In the most advanced systems, registration problems are virtually eliminated by imaging plates that are already mounted on the printing press (computer-to-press imaging, or CTP). CTP is a highly efficient method for large-volume printing applications.
