Non-Destructive Investigation of Paintings with THz-Radiation

Abstract

Nowadays the investigation of paintings is mainly done by means of Xray radiography or ultra violet and infrared reflectometry. The latter is a noninvasive technique since damage to the paint by breaking molecular bonds, as it is known to be caused by UV-radiation, doesn’t occur with the very low photon energies of the infrared radiation. Another advantage… (More)
