This webinar focuses on the application of NIR spectroscopy to works of art. The application of fiber optic spectroradiometry for pigment analysis is bringing the art and science worlds together. The FieldSpec 4 spectroradiometer is optimized for rapid analysis, does not require sample prep and enables non-destructive data collection.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- UV-Vis-NIR's role in luminescence and reflectance spectroscopy in a museum context
- Instrumentation and protocols used
- Cultural heritage analysis challenges: light-sensitive and fragile material, shortage of robust reference samples
- Specific example discoveries on easel paintings, illuminated manuscripts, and historic textiles made using this method
