Optical Imaging Applications for the Study of Cultural Heritage Artifacts (pp. 65-108) $100.00
Authors:  (Irina Crina Anca Sandu, Ineke Joosten, Nuno Leal, REQUIMTE e Departamento de Conservação e Restauro, Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal, and others)
Optical imaging usually describes the behavior of visible, ultraviolet, and infrared radiation1 (Figure 1) used in imaging techniques based on optical principles (Lorusso & Schippa, 1992; Aldrovandi & Picollo, 2001). Reflection, refraction, interference, scattering, transmission, polarization and/or luminescence/fluorescence processes are involved in the optical study of different materials, organic, inorganic, natural or synthetic. Many of these materials can be found as constituents of cultural heritage artifacts, from inorganic pigments, inert materials/charges and supports to organic constituents, such as natural fibers, supports (wood, paper, glass, cardboard, canvas etc.), binders, varnishes or glazes, additives, etc. (Kühn, 1986; Gettens & Stout, 1996; Matteini & Moles, 2002).
