Paper Abstract

Alternative use of sensitizing material and improvement of ion charging in the thermoplastic optical recording device are described which were effective for getting noise free clean images. Sensitizing material that shows less absorption and scattering was chosen for the photoconductor part of active layers in the thermoplastic element. Using a scorotron charging device provided with ion decelerating grid wires, uniform noise free reconstructed images were obtained. Precise measurement and control of the temperature of the plastics revealed that repetitive use of the thermoplastic element should be stopped before hardening of the plastic occurs. The effects of the above improvements are shown by demonstrating clearer reconstructed images and more accurate processed images.
