panchromatic

Photog (of an emulsion or film) made sensitive to all colours by the addition of suitable dyes to the emulsion

panchromatic

[¦pan·krə′mad·ik]
(graphic arts)
Of a photographic emulsion, film, or plate, sensitive to all wavelengths within the visible spectrum, though not uniformly so.

panchromatic

In photography, it means sensitive to light of all colors, as with a film or plate emulsion.
