Dye sensitization with J-aggregated cyanine dyes on tabular AgX grains for color films is characterized by the light absorption and aggregate formation of dyes, electronic structure of the interface between them, efficiency, and rate of the electron transfer from excited dye molecules to AgX grains, and back electron transfer. It is noted that J-aggregates on AgX grains are single-crystalline mono-molecular layers, and that their formation enhances the adsorption of dye molecules to AgX grains and the electron transfer by bringing about small rearrangement energy in the absence of the inverted region in the framework of the Marcus theory. A detailed description is made on the progress for establishing the electron transfer mechanism for dye sensitization.
