Abstract

The methods of determining and taking into account the nonlinearity of the response characteristics of photographic materials used in gas electron diffraction experiments are considered. A technique is proposed that yields reliable characteristics of the nonlinearity of photographic materials based on the instrumental background of an electron diffraction apparatus measured at multiple exposure times. Experiments are carried out and the response curve of the photo emulsion of KODAK SO-193 used in the electron diffraction laboratory of the Chemistry Department of MSU is determined. The developed technique can be applied to determine the response characteristics of various registering devices.
