Abstract

The adjacency effect in film developed by viscous materials causes image-dependent nonlinearities in the photographic image. This effect has seriously restricted the use of viscous-developed film in applications where accurate quantitative sensitometry is desired. In this paper, we present a fundamental diffusion model for viscous development that allows prediction of the developed image from the exposure distribution. A comparison of theoretical experimental results is included.
