Effectively Using Portable IR and Raman Instruments for Art Object Analysis FULL

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

Limited Capacity full

It is often necessary or desirable to conduct an infrared or Raman analysis of art objects that is non-destructive and can be accomplished in the field or in a gallery. Infrared and Raman spectroscopy have long been established as effective non-destructive tools for the analysis of art objects. Only recently have portable infrared and Raman devices come on the market that function reliably with sufficient performance characteristics for the conduct of these measurements. The benefits of using portable infrared and Raman units will be discussed with examples shown of the successful employment of these devices. The pitfalls associated with making such methods will also be discussed. In the hands-on workshop, participants will have the opportunity to run portable infrared and Raman spectrometers on objects provided by the instructors. Participants are invited to bring objects of their own for testing.

Cost: $89
