So, my question is, can this sodium dichromate be used in alternative processes as a light sensitive agent (I know it would have to be isolated from the other chemistry in the solution, but that's another issue).

Does anyone know?
Sodium dichromate can be used as a light sensitive agent. What is the percent solution that you have? If it is a weak solution then you may not be able to get very good results.

I'm quite confused by this comment though.
