Abstract : Thermoplastic recording has a number of advantages in comparison with such 'classical' methods of recording images as photography, electrophotography and magnetic recording. The most important advantages of thermoplastic recording are high resolving power, recording speed and no developing solvents. The principally new diffractional method of thermoplastic recording and production of color images ensures the possibility of achieving high-quality color transmission thanks to the additive principle of mixing colors. Offered only 8 years ago, thermoplastic recording is already applied in certain regions of technology: for recording and reproducing information, in computer technology, for producing film-copies (the Calvar process), etc. Many foreign firms are investigating the region of thermoplastic recording and the number of patents in this area is already more than two hundred. The application of thermoplastic recording for cosmic investigations is very promising. Along with further improvement of electrical methods of thermoplastic recording, at present the most important region of research and invention is development of optical methods of thermoplastic recording that can compete with photography and electrophotography.
