Microphotography is defined as the production of photographs in which the image of the original object has been reduced to extremely small size, but its details are still reproduced with a high degree of clarity. The contributions of the Kodak Research Laboratories to this technology, which is now of considerable commercial importance, have been in the production of sensitized materials having suitable resolution and sensitometric characteristics. These include both silver halide materials and photoresists. Some of the history and characteristics of various products and processes are sketched briefly.
