The combination of spectroscopic information concerning the light absorption, spectral sensitivity, and photobleaching involving the reduction sensitization centers allowed reasonable positioning of their electronic energy levels relative to the band edges of silver halides. A well-defined absorption band centered at 455 nm was observed both for the reduction sensitization centers produced by dimethylamine borane (DMAB) and for the hydrogen hypersensitization centers by using a diffuse transmittance spectroscopy method. We conclude that the common type of reduction sensitization centers, which must be predominantly hole trapping, have their HOMO (highest occupied molecular orbital) levels ∼1.9 eV below the conduction band edge. Additional centers produced at the high level of DMAB sensitization have a higher HOMO level ∼1.6 eV below the conduction band edge, which is identical with that previously ascribed to the subimage center. The dielectric polarization of the surrounding medium critically affects these energy levels. Possible limitations of the spectroscopic information as well as its advantages are also discussed.

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.
