Free XRF Spectroscopy Database of Pigments Checker

2016-10-17T16:32:30+00:00

We just published the new Free XRF Spectroscopy Database of Pigments Checker. Pigments Checker is a collection of swatches of historical pigments that offers art professionals, conservation scientists, conservators and fine art photographers, a tool to evaluate and test their imaging and spectroscopic methodologies for pigment identification. “Pigments Checker Free Spectra Database” is an ongoing [...]

Pigments Checker New Version (2.1)

2016-10-17T16:32:31+00:00

We released Pigments Checker v.2.1. We constantly add features to improve this tool: It comes with our new Multispectral Imaging calibration card. Commercial gray cards for photography cannot be used for multispectral imaging since they absorb near UV and violet radiation. We developed a gray card to cover the 400-1000 nm spectral range. It has 6 swatches, [...]
