INVENTORS, 7520 A us/mm METHOD AND DEVICE FOR INSTANT RECORDING OF LIGHT IMAGES WHILE OBSERVING SAID LIGHT IMAGES BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION In conventional photography, it has been impossible to observe the light image projected onto a photosensitive layer and at the same time to photograph and record it when required. So, with photography, cinema, duplication, enlargement, or leader printer operations, it has been necessary to replace, when photographing for recording, the focal plate for observation placed in the light image forming part by a photosensitive layer, or to reflect by means of a mirror the image-forming light rays formed on the part onto the photosensitive layer when recording, or to provide a separate optical system for observation other than the image-forming optical system for recording.

In either case, therefore, it has been impossible to observe the light image on the photosensitive layer at the very moment when it is recorded and particularly to record and observe at the same time the light image which is produced by electronic apparatuses in the cathode-ray tubes and which changes each moment and to record it just as the expected image appears.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates to a method and a device for instant recording of light images on a photosensitive plate while observing said light images projected on said photosensitive plate, said photosensitive plate having the photo-permeability and being used as a rear screen, and more particularly relates to a method and a device for instant recording of light images while observing said light images, making use of a three layer photosensitive plate composed of a high insulating layer, a photosensitive layer having the P.I.P

can be achieved without being affected by the light image.

Still another purpose object is to provide a method and device for the instant recording of light images while observing said light images which enable the first overall uniform exposure and the observation and recording of the light image at the same time without being affected by the light rays from the observational side behind the photosensitive layer by making the spectral wave-length character of the light from the subsidiary lamp to be of the spectral wave-length range which is approximate to the spectral photosensitivity of the photosensitive layer and also by making the transcharacter, and a conductive layer, as the photosensitive plate having the photo-permeability.

One object of the present invention is to provide a method and device for the instant recording of light images while observing said light images formed on a photosensitive layer, and for this purpose a transparent charging part is set at the photosensitive body on which the light image is formed, and also the photosensitive body which consists of a high insulative layer, a photosensitive layer which is a photoconductor having the internal polarization character, and the conductive layer behind the photosensitive layer, is given transparency and a light scattering characteristic and thus is made to be a rear screen.

Another object of the present invention is to provide a method and device for the instant recording of light images while observing said light images, which use the photosensitive layer with a photoconductor which performs the first overall uniform exposure by approximately uniformly radiating the photosensitive layer of the photosensitive body, and the high insulative layer, the photosensitive layer and the conductive layer of the photosensitive body are given transparency, and also the photosensitive body is given a light scattering characteristic, and the light image produced by the light image producing part is projected onto the photosensitive body while at the same time the photosensitive layer is uniformly illuminated by a subsidiary lamp, so that the first overall uniform exposure parency behind the photosensitive layer non-transparent as to the said spectral wave-length range.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS and record the light images in an illuminated area by the present invention,

FIG. 5 is a diagram showing the relationship between the spectral transparency of the filter and the spectral response of the photosensitive layer of the present invention in FIG. 4.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT The P.I.P. (persistent internal polarization) method is recognized as a method for the recording of light images. The photosensitive body of this method comprises, as is shown by A of FIG. 1, of a photosensitive layer 2 which consists of a photoconductor having the character of causing the P.I.P. on both surfaces of the photosensitive layer 2 when voltage is applied onto the conductive layer 1 by the charging part 4 at the same time as the entire surface of the layer 1 is illuminated by approximately uniform rays, and onto the frontal surface of photosensitive layer 2 which has either attached or coated thereon a transparent high insulative layer 3 between which layer and conductive layer 1 at the rear is positioned the photosensitive layer 2, all three of such layers constituting the photosensitive body. On the frontal surface of the high insulative layer 3 the transparent charging part 4 is detachably set. Between a direct current power source 5, which supplies voltage through a switch 6 which can set on or off the supplied direct voltage from the power source and also convert its polarity, is electrically connected between layer 1 and charging part 4. Therefore, when the switch 6 is set on and the direct voltage is applied to charging part 4 as compared to the conductive layer 1 and, at the same time, the uniform radiation is applied from the front thus achieving the first overall uniform exposure, and thus achieving the internal polarization in the photosensitive layer 2, the switch is thereafter converted so as to apply the voltage with the polarity contrary to the previously applied voltage onto the charging part 4 and the light image is projected so that the light image may be recorded in the photosensitive body A. When the switch 6 is set off and the charging part 4 and the photosensitive body A are cut off from each other, then, to such rays as the photosensitive body A may be exposed, the electric latent image of the light image can be preserved without change on the surface of the high insulative layer 3, and the latent image can be developed by some toner or be transferred to obtain the recorded picture of the light image.

With the present invention which utilizes such a theory of light image recording as described above and also makes it possible to record the light images while observing them, such a transparent layer as, for instance, NESA glass is used for the conductive layer 1 in order to provide the transparency for the photosensitive body A which comprises photosensitive layer 2 (consisting of the photoconductor having the internal polarization character), the high insulative layer 3 and the conductive layer 1. The light scattering characteristic is given to the photosensitive layer or the conductive layer 1 on the side which does not receive the light image or the high insulative layer 3, so that the photosensitive body A is made into a rear screen. A photoconductor such as [ZnCd]S: Ag, which has a high P.I.P. (viz., the ability to increase the trap density of a charged body and maintain the internal polarization), or such an organic photoconductor as polyvinyl carbazole and its conductor can be used as the photosensitive body Av Therefore, as shown in FIG. 3 for example, when the object 9 being illuminated by the light source 8 through the condenser lens 8 is formed into an image by the projecting lens 7 from the direction of the high insulative layer 3 of the photosensitive body A, and the light image is projected onto photosensitive layer 2 through charging part 4 such as a corona charging device or a transparent terminal plate which faces the high insulative layer 3, the light image is scattered by the scattering surface formed on conductive layer 1 on the other side of the photosensitive body A and'whereby it can be observed. The corona charging device 4 consists of a corona terminal wire 4b (FIG. 2) provided on the conductive frame 40 which is connected with the high voltage power source 5 through switch 6 and on which is provided, for insulation, the NESA glass 4c which in grounded, so that observation of the light image is made possible. After the first overall uniform exposure of uniformly illuminating the photosensitive body A by the subsidiary lamp 10 takes place, which is performed at the same time as the corona charging with a certain polarity carried out by switching on the switch 6, the switch 6 is switched off and the light image on the photosensitive body A is observed. When recording is required after the imageand projection-adjustment, the light image which is being observed can be recorded by setting the switch 6 onto the opposite polarity, and when the photosensitive body is exposed to the rays or brought into a bright place the electrostatic latent image is formed on the high insulative layer 3 of the photosensitive body and the image can be developed on the high insulative layer 3 by means of a toner and printed there or be further transferred.

When the photoconductive body, such as CdS or organic photoconductor, whose P.l.P. character easily causes dark polarization is used for the photosensitive layer of the present invention, the first overall uniform exposure by the subsidiary lamp 10 at the time of the pre-charging is not needed and the construction becomes as is shown in FIG. 1. In the preferred embodiment of FIG. 3 described above, if the light quantity from the subsidiary lamp 10 is made large enough as compared to the light image, the first overall uniform exposure is not affected by the light image even when the subsidiary lamp is turned on at the same time as the light image of the object 9 is projected and the switch 6 is switched on and the first overall uniform exposure is performed, so that approximately uniform polarization can be achieved on the photosensitive layer 2.

FIG. 2 shows a preferred embodiment in which the image of the cathode-ray tube 11 is projected by the image-forming lens 7 onto the photosensitive body A. As shown in this Figure, even when the image-illumination is completed from the direction of the conductive layer 1 of the photosensitive body A, the same observation and recording of the light image can be performed as in the preferred embodiment shown in the FIGS. 1 and 3. Needless to say, the conductive layer 1 needs to be transparent in this case and either the photosensitive layer 2 or the high insulative layer 3 must have the light scattering characteristic and also the corona charging device 4 must be set in the rear of the photosensitive body A, i.e., on the other side of the light image illumination, facing the high insulative layer 3.

With the preferred embodiment shown in FIG. 4, the recording at the same time as the observation of the light image can be carried out in a bright place, and the photosensitive layer 2, for which the known [ZnCd] SzAg is used, has the characteristic of varying the spectral response according to the ingredient ratio of the CdS. When the CdS ingredient ratio of the photosensitive layer 2 is adjusted so that the layer 2 has the wavelength response for the Wave-lengfli range of 4,000 to 5,000 A. as is shown in FIG. 5, the photosensitive layer 2 absorbs well and does not allow the rays to pass within said wave-length range. Therefore a blue filter 10b, is provided since it has the spectral transparency as to shut off the rays outside said wave-length range coming from the incandescent lamp 10a of subsidiary light source 10 and, through this filter 10b, the uniform exposure is given onto the photosensitive layer 2. And the spectral wave-length transparency of the high insulative layer 3 or the filter provided with it (when the high insulative layer is provided behind the photosensitive layer) or of the transparent terminal 1 behind the photosensitive layer 2 or the filter l provided with it, is made to absorb and not allow to pass the wave-length range of the spectral response of the said photosensitive layer 2 or allow to pass other wave-length ranges. For the photosensitive layer 2 the organic photoconductive PVC (polyvinyl carbazole) is often used, instead of the said [ZnCd] SzAg, which has traps in high density and practicable and suitable transparency. The PVC has a good transparency and with it the color sensitivity can be controlled by increasing the pigment sensitivity, so that it is quite effective when used for the present preferred embodiment.

Owing to the construction as described above, because the first overall uniform exposure is done by turning on the subsidiary light source a at the same time as the corona is charging by means of the voltage with a certain polarity given by the switch 6, the light image of the object 9 can be observed in the yellow (which is the complementary color of blue) image even while the uniform exposure is being done. That is to say, as is shown in FIG. 4, in the dark part 9b of the object 9, all the red, green and blue rays R, G, B of the white light of the light source 8 are absorbed and in the bright part 9a all the rays R, G, B are allowed to pass. However, at the photosensitive, layer 2, the blue ray B is absorbed and the red and green rays R, G can be observed as a yellow image through the rear screen. In this case, even though the subsidiary lamp 10a may be on, the rays R, G, are stopped by the blue filter 10b and do not reach the photosensitive layer 2 except by the blue ray B, which is absorbed by the photosensitive layer 2, so that the rays from the subsidiary lamp 10a do not disturb the light-image observation.

Also, when the observation side is light and the rays R, G", B" come in from behind, the blue ray B is absorbed by the high insulative layer 3 provided in the rear, or the conductive layer 1, or the filter set with it and the other rays R, G" are allowed to pass but they do not affect the photosensitive layer 2, so that the recording of the light image is not disturbed at all.

The explanation given above concerns the object 9 illuminated by the white light, but the same action and effect can be achieved concerning the object, such as the cathode-ray tube shown in FIG. 2, that emits light in itself.

The present invention can be applied, besides the recording of the photography in general as described above, to microscopic photography, X-ray photography, oscillograph photography, cathode-ray tube image photography of TV, making it possible to record the light image at the decisive moment when recording is required, and is useful for academic or medical photography and also for radio newspaper leader printer, and the operation can be made easy for the recording can be done by switching and not by the conventional shutters.
