Laser induced fluorescence (LIF) associated with imaging scanning techniques has already proved to be a powerful diagnostic tool for artworks.

Abstract

Laser induced fluorescence (LIF) associated with imaging scanning techniques has already proved to be a powerful diagnostic tool for artworks. The aim is to assess on-site and remote sensing systems and imaging measurements on murals in order to detect vulnerability and weathering forms due to the effects of environmental conditions. It also seeks to identify treatments in order to optimize interventions by restorers. Four murals (16-18th centuries) were studied using a LIF prototype remotely operating in reflectance and fluorescence mode. Relevant spectral features are identified using principal component analysis and a spectral angle mapper to assess surfaces using imaging applications. The combination of these methods makes possible to identify bio-crust, fissures and the presence of different treatments. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
