Possibilities of cryogenic autoradiography

Photographic properties of one of atomic photodetectors are studied at the temperature of liquid nitrogen. The characteristic curves obtained at room and cryogenic temperatures indicate that the detector retains its physical and photographic properties, and its possibilities can be expanded to studies of deeply frozen samples. The data obtained point to an increase in the sensitivity of the photographic material frozen to cryogenic temperatures at short exposures.
