Propagation of multiple laser beams | Propagation of multiple laser beams through the pattern-integrated interference lithography system. The picture has been obtained by displacing a tissue on the beam paths during a 98s exposure time. GIMP was used to improve the uniformity and extents of the beams. —Matthieu Leibovici, Georgia Institute of Technology  - See more at: http://www.osa-opn.org/home/gallery/#sthash.LGbSQONV.dpuf
