In spite of the current novelty of magnetic imaging techniques, photographic film still provides the highest resolution and most beautiful images of any imaging medium. This study systematically describes the theory and mechanisms of photographic sensitivity, with topics stressing the characteristics of silver halide photography. The author discusses the structure and preparation of silver halide grains, physical properties of silver halides, mechanisms of latent image formation, spectral sensitization, chemical sensitization and stabilization, photographic development, and future prospects.
Notwithstanding the current excitement surrounding cutting-edge digital imaging techniques, photographic film still provides the highest resolution and most beautiful images of any medium available. For the first time in nearly 20 years, Photographic Sensitivity: Theory and Mechanisms offers a comprehensive, systematic description of the subject, stressing in particular the characteristics of silver halide photography. Topics range from how to prepare silver halide grains and latent image formation to spectral and chemical sensitization to the future of silver halide photography. Based on the author's more than 30 years' experience in the field, Photographic Sensitivity will appeal to a wide range of readers, including students, chemists, and physicists working with silver halide imaging techniques and solid state imaging.
