We describe a scanning mirage microscope system that uses a diode probe laser. The sample is raster scanned using X-Y motorised microstepping stages under an Ar+ pump beam to give two dimensional scans and depth profiles. The results for a test sample are given and are compared to that obtained by scanning using a conventional large photoacoustic (PA) cell.
