... it was roughly ten years ago that I was putting the finishing touches on our first commercial laser signal injection microscope (LSIM). The research and development at that stage was fast and furious. Acronyms were flying off the research pages: OBIC (Fig. 1), LIVA, TIVA, OBIRCH, SCOBIC, RIL, SDL, to name a few...

... through the use of certain global techniques, such as OBIRCH, OBIC, SQUID, and PEM. There are cases when these global localization methods do not provide useable information that allows the analyst to narrow the search. In these cases, the divide-and-conquer approach can be useful. Figure 2 shows...

... and not current imaging? Well, voltage shift imaging has two advantages over the direct imaging of the photocurrent (optical beam induced current, or OBIC). First, the IC acts as its own current-tovoltage amplifier, thus producing a much larger LIVA signal than a photocurrent signal. Second, IC voltage...
