Abstract : Dyed color films manufactured for theatrical lighting have been tested for dosimetric response between 100,000 and 10 to the 8th power roentgens. Optical density for 61 colored films as a function of wavelength was measured before and after an exposure of 50 million roentgens. Based on the sensitivity and stability of the 61 exposed films, two were investigated for change in optical density at an optimum wavelength as a function of exposure value. The effect of storage temperature was also investigated for one of the films. (Author)
