A laser technique to make one tissue adhere to another.

soldering

(sŏd′ĕr-ĭng)
The joining of two pieces of metal by use of a lower-melting-point alloy. When the melted solder cools and solidifies, it joins the parts together. Soldering is used to join many components of dental appliances or orthodontic bands and to add bulk or contours to crowns or inlays.

For single-sided or simple double-sided boards where the designer has followed strict design-for-x-ray guidelines, 2-D is an effective solution for detecting soldering defects.
(It should be noted that a major cause of reflow soldering defects, both for SnPb and Pb-free alloys, is improper aperture geometries.
How can one differentiate black pad from other soldering defects? The authors present high-resolution optical and SEM images of real-life soldering problems, demonstrating the difference between black pad issues, flexing issues and component issues, pointing at specific features identifying the syndrome.
As copper content increases in the solder bath, the fluidity of the solder decreases; this can cause more soldering defects.
