Paper Abstract

Experiments have been conducted to record infrared images using wax films as photographic material. The thin films used which were prepared by Dip Coating Method have been deposited on glass plates. As indicated in a previous paper, the thickness of wax films has been chosen to be approximately 0.6 μm. An investigation has been conducted to study the possibility of lowering the intensity threshold needed to photograph infrared images. Good results have been obtained when the photographic plates are preheated; so, the 0.4 J/cm2 required previously is now reduced. Moreover infrared images obtained are seen as surface deformation of the recording medium and, by using a conventional photographic system, the final picture is achieved under an appropriate illumination.
