LEDµSF


Please request more information if you are interested in this product.


A portable spectrofluorimeter for non-invasive analysis of cultural heritage artworks using LED sources.

The LEDµSF is a new device that is essential to answer critical questions during the scientific analysis of materials in artwork. 

 

Topics include:

  • Characterization of pictorial techniques
  • Pigment Restoration assistance
  • Diagnosis of the state of conservation
  • Authentication of murals
  • LEDµSF

 

Features

  • Portable and lightweight spectrofluorimeter
  • Contactless, non-invasive and non-destructive measurements
  • Modular Design: exchangeable LEDs from 255 - 623 nm according to the materials analyzed
  • Irradiation Spot: ca. 1 mm
  • Adjustable Power of LED
  • Remote triggering with the possibility to set integration time (adjustable from 3 μs - 600 s)
  • Database of reference spectra of pigments and binders
  • White LED for reflectance spectra
  • Camera and two red lasers for easy positioning and adjustment of the working distance (ca. 4 cm)
  • Recordable spectra from 190 - 1100 nm with a resolution of 1.5 nm

 

UV Fluorescence Analysis of Organic and Inorganic Materials

  • Natural binders
  • Wax
  • Resin
  • Varnish
  • Pigments
  • Textiles
  • Dyes
  • Polymer materials

 

Monitoring of an Accelerated Aging

LegendBefore irradiation, the cochineal has a maximum of fluorescence emission at about 640 nm (due to anthraquinones compounds: carminic acid & laccaic acid). 
 
After 12 hours of UV light irradiation at 254 nm, the maximum of emission shifts towards the short wavelengths (625 nm) and the band of the yellow components is more visible at 577 nm which indicates the destruction of the red carminic acid.
