A non-destructive IR reflectance tool for analyzing art objects.

ArtView operates in a non-contact mode, using a reflectance method to measure the mid-IR spectrum of artifacts. Mid-IR spectroscopy can distinguish a wide range of organic and mineral materials, even when data quality is less than optimal. ArtView collects data by reflectance. Even quite rough or dull surfaces can reflect enough mid-IR radiation to generate a spectrum that can be used to identify materials, or make useful comparisons.
