Analysis of Artists’ Paints using FT-IR Microspectroscopy - Conservation and Authenticity Studies

The SurveyIR compact-microscope from Redwave Technologies coupled with Shimadzu’s compact IRSpirit FTIR spectrophotometer provides a perfect solution for microanalysis of artist’s materials. Since sample size or area of these samples are often larger than 60 μm (the smallest measurable size of the system), the standard detector used for measurement and the need for cryogenic cooling is eliminated. This also provides a portable solution allowing microanalyses in situations where samples cannot be removed from the location of the artwork. The microscope software also employs digital imaging software to observe, document, analyze, and store images.
