Recognition of pigment layers in illuminated manuscripts by means of Kalpha/Kbeta and Lalpha/Lbeta ratios of characteristic X-rays.

Abstract

X-ray fluorescence analysis with an evaluation of the Kalpha/Kbeta or Lalpha/Lbeta count rate ratios enables a layered structure to be recognized, because the measured ratio of two lines of one element depends on the depth distribution of this element in the analyzed objects. Several specimens consisting of layers of various pigments were analyzed to… (More)
