The present study illustrates the use of near infrared spectroscopy in the conservation and restoration field. This application of the technique, widely used in other fields such as the agricultural and food industries, is very interesting due to two of its features: rapidity and non-destructiveness. In this study, three classification algorithms have been used to attempt to correlate the spectra of the samples under study-mixtures of two pigments (one organic and the other inorganic)-with binder recipes found in literature. Some of these recipes have very similar compositions, but they were distinguished into groups, depending on the painting technique associated with them.

    This work explores a novel method for rearranging 1st order ( one-way) infra-red (IR) and/or near infra-red (NIR) ordinary spectra into a representation suitable for multi-way modelling and analysis. The method is based on the fact that the fundamental IR absorption and the first, second, and...

    Atmospheric analysis by open-path Fourier-transform infrared (OP/FT-IR) spectrometry has been possible for over two decades but has not been widely used because of the limitations of the software of commercial instruments. In this paper, we describe the current state-of-the-art of the hardware...
