Paper Abstract

A study into the stability of the photographic latent image is presented. Four factors have been investigated - time, temperature, humidity, and spectral sensitization of the emulsion. It is found that the effective speed of the emulsion passes through a maximum and then begins a rapid decrease when the material is stored at elevated temperatures. This study shows humidity and sensitization to be less in magnitude than temperature in producing changes in the latent image when all are a function of time.
