30 g Potassium Bromide
One litre water
Dilute two parts developer with one part water. (Yes, that's right, 2:1.)
One-half to two minutes
Temperature: 20C Agitation: Constant.
A high-energy developer that can be used for reflection holograms, albeit a bit noisier than developers especially designed for holography.
A good one to start with on BB-640 and BB-520 plates.
Storage life: Undiluted developer can last for months in tightly stoppered bottle; diluted working solution dies in 24 hours.
