1 May 1995 Dye laser microablation: instrumentation and applications
Author Affiliations +
Pulsed laser output, when coupled to a microscope, is a powerful tool for microablation of samples. Applications range from ablation to cellular material to destruction of conducting traces in integrated circuits. Coupling the laser to the microscope for optimum performance, however, is not a simple exercise. The optical characteristics of both the laser and the microscope must be carefully considered. This paper discusses the techniques which are important when coupling a laser to a microscope.
