Time-Resolved Microscopy of Lasers Photothermal Imaging

Serguei G. Koulikov and Dana D. Dlott

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.
