WHAT DOES SENSITOMETRY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Sensitometry

Sensitometry is the scientific study of light-sensitive materials, especially photographic film. The study has its origins in the work by Ferdinand Hurter and Vero Charles Driffield with early black-and-white emulsions. They determined how the density of silver produced varied with the amount of light received, and the method and time of development.

Definition of sensitometry in the English dictionary

The definition of sensitometry in the dictionary is the process of using an instrument for measuring the sensitivity to light of a photographic material over a range of exposures.
