Paper Abstract

This paper refers to the study of processes conducting to halftone image recording on photothermoplastic media (PTPM) by the preliminary formation of raster surface gratings. Whenever a pre-rastering recording method is used, it has two charging cycles which include: (1) Preliminary formation of raster grating by recording an interference grating on the PTPM surface; (2) Partial non-charging thermal erasure of the raster grating by continuous PTPM heating; (3) Examination of the photographic characteristics of rastered gray-scale images during recording by a second charging of PTPM. The methodology employed provides the necessary diffraction efficiency (DE) in the illuminated areas of the PTPM as well as a low DE value in background areas, so as to achieve a maximum PTPM photosensibility of up to S equals 106 cm2/J, and a contrast coefficient (gamma) equals 1.4, while the maximum contrast value of recorded images is Km greater than 40.
