Final Report - INFRARTSONIC (Development of a novel and integrated portable non destructive analysis system for the documentation of artworks)

Project ID: 15338
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

This is the final report for the 'Development of a novel and integrated portable non destructive analysis system for the documentation of artworks' (INFRARTSONIC) project. From its outset INFRARTSONIC aimed to develop a novel and integrated non-destructive portable system for the determination of artworks paint layers profile in depth as well as the local distribution of the pigments in each of the paint layers.

The report describes that the system that was finally developed combine two modalities, acoustic microscopy and UV-VIS-nIR-mIR diffuse reflectance spectroscopy. Data acquired with the two modalities in the same areas of analysis are jointly processed and correlated to trace the depth profile of the paint layers (ultrasound modality) and to map the pigments in each respective paint layer.
