Abstract : Research leading to a high speed photographic system based on xerographic principles is described. A primary aim of the program has been to evaluate possibilities for increased speed through use of quantum gain in an imaging system. Success was achieved in demonstrating the use of gain in one such system. Investigations of the various system elements which led to this success are described in this report. This includes the photoreceptor, for which both variations of normal amorphous selenium plates and new plate materials of the CdS-CdSe family were tried. It includes the development method, for which a particular variety of thermoplastic deformation recording proved very promising. In addition to the primary aim of achieving gain, investigation of other parameters of interest in a photographic system were undertaken, such as resolution measurements and sensitometric determination. Efforts to improve panchromatic response and thereby to increase sensitivity to daylight were undertaken and led to significant improvements. (Author)
