Paper Abstract

The aim of this work was to study the pros and cons of using the laser exposure of thick film screen emulsions (thicknesses 5 - 30 micrometers ) with a mesh count of 200 - 400. A focused Ar+ laser, emitting wavelengths in the UV (351 and 365 nm), was utilized in the exposure of commercial negative diazotype emulsions. A special visible sensitized orthochromatic thick film emulsion was used at a wavelength of 488 nm. The Ar+ laser beam was focused using an objective with a focal length of 28 mm (UV, apochromatic, NA equals 0.32, spot size 1 micrometers ) and 20 mm (visible, NA equals 0.42, spot size 6 micrometers ). The laser beam was raster scanned with an alignment accuracy of 1 micrometers and unit step of 80 nm and was modulated above the thick film screen.
