Tools and Techniques for UV/Visible Fluorescence Documentation FILLING

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

This workshop will provide an opportunity for conservators to learn more about the tools and techniques needed to create high quality UV/visible fluorescence images that can be meaningfully analyzed, compared and viewed. UV/visible fluorescence is a powerful, non-destructive, imaging technique that can be used as a diagnostic tool and to inform conservation treatment. However, this technique's usefulness for these applications is compromised by inconsistencies in approach and expectations. Through lecture and demonstration, participants will learn about practical tools such as filters, UVA lamps, UV safety equipment, standardization targets, reflectance targets, and post-processing techniques. Scientific data will be used to illustrate the positive and negative aspects of materials, giving participants the knowledge to evaluate new tools and equipment. When possible, low-cost and practical options will be presented.

Cost: $169
