Paper Abstract

Infrared presensitization photography (IRPP) is used to acquire images of the solar disk in the 1- to 2-μm regime. This is the first time IRPP has been employed at such short IR wavelengths, used against a thermal (instead of a laser) source, and applied to astronomy. The experiments demonstrate the feasibility of IRPP for solar imaging, but the image quality needs improvement for solar research
