This paper describes two methods utilizing the transmission electron microscope for studying the structural characteristics of photographic silver halide grains: (1) direct observation and subsequent determination of the grain size-frequency distribution for a given emulsion and (2) the carbon replica technique for studying the external structure of the grains. Other uses of the electron microscope in photographic research that could be applied at R.I.T. are briefly discussed.
