Silver bromide crystals have been precipitated by the double-jet method. The presence of polar aprotic solvents or protic solvents with a dissociation constant smaller than water increased the ratio and size of tabular crystals in the precipitate. This is explained considering that {111} surfaces are mainly composed of halide ions and therefore charged. Organic solvents reduce the solvation of the halide ions in the solution and stabilize the surface charge. A high ionic strength greatly favored the ratio of tabular crystals and enhanced tabular growth probably by helping the formation of the double electrical layer on the charged {111} faces.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) is dedicated to the advancement of imaging science knowledge, the practical applications of such knowledge, and how imaging science relates to other fields of study. The pages of this journal are open to reports of new theoretical or experimental results, and to comprehensive reviews. Only original manuscripts that have not been previously published, nor currently submitted for publication elsewhere, should be submitted.

    IS&T's JIST-first publication option allows authors wishing to present their work at conferences, but have a journal citation for their paper, to submit a paper to JIST that follows the same rigorous peer-review vetting and publication process as traditional JIST articles, but with the benefit of a condensed time-to-publication time frame and guaranteed conference presentation slot.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
