Paper Abstract

Dry Silver technology was discovered at 3M and introduced into various imaging applications in the mid-sixties. In the early 1980's, quality films and papers with extended spectral responses, greater dynamic ranges, and improved sensitivity and edge acuity were introduced into sophisticated imaging systems. These products also have improved shelf life at elevated storage temperatures, and improved print stability. At the present time, 3M is developing a full-color dry silver product. This product has the same rapid-access, easy-to-use characteristics as the black and white dry silver recording materials. It has high resolution, long gray scale, and adequate sensitivity for CRT's and other electronically addressable exposure devices. The product can be processed in the same processors used for the black and white dry silver products.
