Abstract

A theoretical and experimental study of the exposure of photographic film demonstrates differences that depend upon spatial and temporal properties of the exposing light. These differences of developed film density are due to irradiance fluctuations and the threshold nature of the photographic detection process. The model used provides a means of explaining discrepancies found in related experiments of other investigators.
