Art-test offers the most advanced imaging techniques: the patented Multi-layer® method, all IR reflectography techniques, the unique XRF scanning, together with the classical ones: X-Rays, Thermography, Multispectral imaging, and so on.
Chemical and physical analyses on microsamples to characterize and understand the history of the objects in terms of raw materials used, manufacturing process, dating, preservation.
Methods to record and analyse the shape and internal structure of small and large items, via not only 3D modeling like photogrammetry and laser scanning, but also CAT, ultrasound analyses, georadar testing, microclimatic surveys…
The complementary information provided by the various techniques can be exploited to locate and identify on the whole image the different materials, detecting restorations, for classification or virtual restoration, virtual cleaning and so on.
