Abstract : The author comments on the renewed interest in photographic emulsions as a means of detecting isolated ionizing particles and as a high grade precision measuring instrument. Contains a brief review of earlier significant developments in this field and proceeds to a study of the subject of nuclear photographic emulsion with the following objectives: (1) to present the advantages and disadvantages specific to nuclear emulsions compared to other methods of visualization, thus delimiting the fields of research in which the use of nuclear emulsions offers maximum profitability and efficiency; (2) to review the more important recent progress in the technique of nuclear emulsions as well as some of the more important physical results obtained in recent times by its use.
