  Photographic plate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Photographic plates were one of the earliest forms of photographic film, in which a light-sensitive emulsion of silver salts was applied to a glass plate.
However, photographic plates were in wide use by the professional astronomical community as late as the 1990s.
Photographic plates were also an important tool in early high-energy physics, as they get flened by ionizing radiation.

 History of Photography in Astronomy
After a photograph was taken on the plate, it was developed by exposing the plate to a current of magnesium vapor heated to a temperature of 75 degrees Celsius.
However, these early photographic plates were not sensitive enough to image faint objects.
This process produced a plate which had a much higher sensitivity than the early daguerrotypes, but it needed to be used as soon as it was made.

In the early part of the nineteenth century, Louis J. Daguerre created the first photographic plate, which was simply a thin film of polished silver on a copper base.
Once again astronomers were inconvenienced by the fact that wet plates had to be used immediately after they were produced, and although they had a higher sensitivity to light, the extra sensitivity came at a cost: the extra time and effort it took to have the plates ready to go for the night's observing.
Because photographic emulsions are made up of particles in suspension, this graininess cannot be completely eliminated and so at some level there will always be a loss of detail in taking a photograph.

 COMMISSIONER FOR CUSTOMS AND EXCISE AND ANOTHER v KEMTEK IMAGING SYSTEMS - 62 SATC 150
This is borne out by the fact that ‘fluorographic plates and film in the flat’ for X-rays are specifically mentioned under tariff heading 37.01 while it is stated in the explanatory notes to tariff heading 37.02 that X-ray film in rolls is generally sensitised on both sides.
Fluorographic plates, film in the flat, instant print film of paperboard, offset duplicating masters and lithographic plates are categorised under tariff heading 37.01 and in some cases the subcategories are based on the thickness of the plate or film.
The reference to photographic plates would according to the respondent not have been necessary if plates or plate material was intended to be excluded from the term ‘photo-graphic film in rolls’.

 M. Blau "On the photographic effects of natural H-radiation "
The probe, enclosed in paraffin and absorption foils, was mounted on cardboard and covered by a thin iron plate with a gap of 0.5 mm width and 2.5 mm length (iron does not react with the photographic plate).
Opposite to the reacting side of the photographic plate, a glass plate with a spacing between the glass and the photographic plate of the thin cardboard was set up in the way that the radiation entered the space between the two plates.
An iron-tin plate E with a thickness of 0.4 mm is soldered at the lower side of the plate with the tilted gap and has a quadratic hole cut out in the middle with a side length of 1 cm.

A photographic mask is accordingly made for this purpose and the zones of the photographic plate corrsponding to the intended diffusion locations are flened in said mask.
The photograph constituting the mask which is intended to form the integrated circuit or at least one of these stages is for example on a scale of 1:5 with respect to the real dimensions of the circuit to be formed.
In order to define the photograph as a whole, it is therefore necessary to displace the imager with respect to the photograph or to displace the photograph with respect to the imager ten times in the direction of the width and ten times in the direction of the length.

 Rutherford
While with X rays a strong impression is produced on a photographic plate in a few minutes or even by a single discharge, a day’s exposure to the uranium rays is required to produce a well-marked action, even though the uranium compound, enveloped in fl paper, is placed close to the plate.
The chief drawback of the photographic methods lies in the difficulty of deducing the intensity of the intensity of the radiation from measurements of the density of the photographic plate impression.
In many cases, the plate does become charged to a definite positive or negative potential depending on the metal, but this is due to the [199] contact difference of potential between the plates, and would be produced whether the rays were charged or not.

The photographic plates were scanned with the Yale PDS microdensitometer using the same procedure described in Bailyn et al.
The transformation from CCD coordinates to plate coordinates is linear, while the transformation from plate coordinates to equatorial coordinates is quadratic, and we used PPM proper motions to update the reference stars to the plate epoch.
The transformation that included the link between plate coordinates and ground-based CCD coordinates is about 0.013 arcsec, and it is mainly due to the measuring accuracy of the cluster stars on the plate in relation to the number of cluster stars used in the plate solution.

Ives's career as a photographic inventor began in 1873 when, at the age of 17, while working as an apprentice printer for a newspaper in Litchfield, Connecticut, he constructed a camera from a cigar box and spectacle lens so that he could experiment with the collodion wet-plate process.
The plate was then removed from the acid and the remaining emulsion washed off, revealing an image of the object's shadows etched into the plate and marked by the pattern of pits on its surface.
Photographers could only work in close proximity to their darkrooms; photographers who wished to work in the field had no choice but to tote their darkroom along with them.

The large collection of these plates exceeded the drawer space and some groups of plates were stacked in boxes.
The wooden boxes emit gasses which are harmful to the photographic emmulsion and a part of the project is to move the plates to more inert archival boxes.
The volume required for each plate is increased as a result of this rehousing and the resulting boxes require either greater floor space or compact shelving.

 The 2006-2011 World Outlook for Prepared Photographic Plate Chemicals
It is for this definition of prepared photographic plate chemicals that the aggregate latent demand estimates are derived.
Based on the aggregate view of prepared photographic plate chemicals as defined above, data were then collected for as many similar countries as possible for that same definition, at the same level of the value chain.
Another way of looking at this is to say that latent demand for prepared photographic plate chemicals is more likely to be similar across countries that have similar characteristics in terms of economic development (i.e., African countries will have similar latent demand structures controlling for the income variation across the pool of African countries).

 Thesis
Previous to CCD astronomical imaging the astronomer would not be certain of the quality of his images prior to development of the photographic plate at which time the celestial positioning or the atmospheric conditions may not prove conducive for re-imaging.
Comparison of photographic plate size to CCD detector array size would indicate that there is an approximate 7.5 times larger plate size for the 3" x 5" photographic plate over the 36-mm x 36-mm CCD array size.
The larger photographic plate size provides for an image that captures a larger field of view of the object as compared to the imaged field that can be captured using the CCD camera.

Photography extended the range of observable magnitudes far beyond that of the eye, because in a time exposure a photographic plate can soak up light for hours on end, which the eye cannot.
Most astronomical photographs are taken on types of film that are not equally sensitive to light of all colors.
