Paper Abstract

The principles involved in the IR presensitization photography (IRPP) are discussed, and the feasibility of using IRPP in solar IR astronomy is investigated. Images of the solar disk were acquired in the 1- to 2-micron regime, demonstrating that IRPP is a feasible technique for solar imaging. However, in order to use IRPP images for solar research, the image quality needs improvement in terms of resolution and photometric accuracy.
