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.
