Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide the theoretical basis for the analysis of the artefact through non-invasive and/or minimally invasive investigations.

The bases for understanding the physics of colour in non-self-luminous bodies are laid. The students will be introduced to the physiology of colour and its perception. Finally, colorimetry, its applications, colour and the illumination of objects are presented in order to make the students aware of the limitation and subjectivity of the "eye instrument" and of the need to use specific instruments.

Program

Non-invasive investigation techniques.

IBA techniques (Ion Beam Analysis). Radiography and tomography.

UV fluorescence. Investigations in the visible: grazing light and transillumination.

IR reflectometry. Thermography.

Partially invasive investigation techniques.

Radiocarbon dating. Thermoluminescence.

Elements of optics for colorimetry.

Physics of colour in non-self-luminous bodies.

Physiology of colour vision. Colour perception. Photometry.
