External reflection Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy
ISAAC lab is equipped with a commercial small footprint FTIR spectrometer that can be operated in external reflection mode thus enabling non-invasive and non-destructive measurements of FTIR spectra in a large spectral range (from short wave IR to midIR).
Identification of organic and inorganic materials;
Assistance of pigments and binding media identification;
Analysis of degradation products.
