The configuration of photosensitive dye molecules with respect to AgBr lattice is investigated by transmission electron microscopy and electron diffraction, using merocyanine dye (3-ethyl-5-2-(3-ethyl-2-3H)-benzothiazolylidene)-ethylidene]-2-thioxo-4-thiazolidinone; BTET) films vacuum-deposited on (100) and (111) AgBr surfaces. Island and oriented growth of the dye films, in α-phase (triclinic), is found on these AgBr surfaces. The observed epitaxial relations are as follows: (155) [01¯1]BTET//(100)<011>AgBr on the (100) AgBr surface and (011) [ 011]BTET//(111)<101>AgBron the (111) AgBr surface, where the BTET molecules are adsorbed in edge-standing on the AgBr surfaces. The J-absorption peak is observed in optical spectra of these BTET films, which indicates that they form J-aggregates.

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.
