Infrared Sensitisation of Film

So I have some Tri-X (Arista  Premium 400) loaded in a patterson tank I presoaked in water, then soaked in a pigment that has a certain amount of IR absorption.

Now the film is drying in the tank and will be re-loaded into a reloadable 35mm canister.

Hopefully there'll be some pigment adjacent to the silver halide, and hopefully the pigment will be able to transfer energy to it.

I'll be shooting it with an R72 filter, focussed visually on a ruler for test shots, looking for a focus shift on the ruler.
