Infrared Fluorescence lamp
Our Infrared Fluorescence lamp is a low-cost alternative to expensive VIS-only scientific lighting systems. This lamp provides pure visible light for infrared fluorescence photography. Some molecules and minerals (among them some pigments) exhibit Infrared Fluorescence. This phenomenon it’s similar to Ultraviolet Fluorescence where a beam of ultraviolet light produces visible light emission. In the case of Infrared Fluorescence, a beam of Visible light generates an emission of Infrared light. This photographic method allows to identify and locate cadmium pigments (cadmium red, cadmium yellow, cadmium green) and Egyptian blue. Infrared fluorescence photography is used in archaeology to detect even tiny fragments of Egyptian blue pigment.
