silver halide emulsion

An emulsion in which grains of the photosensitive material silver halide are deposited. Each grain, when exposed to light, either develops or fails to develop as a unit, leaving a dark or clear region on the developed negative. The size of the grains relates to the sensitivity of the emulsion and the resolution of the image.
