Spectral Imaging Techniques in Conservation
Multispectral imaging is a non-invasive analysis technique, useful both prior to or during intervention, in a wide range of specialization fields. Among others, it allows to make invisible features (such as under-drawings) visible, and the identification and mapping of constitutive materials.
The workshop will focus on the current Spectral Imaging technology used in active and preventive art conservation. Its basic principles, applications, operation methods and efficiency will be introduced and demonstrated by the scientist Prof. Vassilis Papadakis and the conservator António Cardoso of XpectralTEK. Potential applications on cultural heritage will be presented from real case studies, with a hands-on session on different materials like paintings, paper, glass, ceramics.
