Active infrared thermography is an important non-destructive technique frequently employed in the analysis of cultural heritage. For its capability to show subsurface features in the artifacts, this technique has been used to investigate various kinds of artifacts, composed of different structures and materials. In this work, an overview of its recent applications is presented. In particular, the detection of cold working features in bronze sculpture investigations, of buried features in ancient book bindings, such as their structural characteristics and written scraps re-used in their manufacturing process, and on the investigation of defects and inhomogeneities in illuminations, is reported.

Abstract

Active infrared thermography is an important non-destructive technique frequently employed in the analysis of cultural heritage. For its capability to show subsurface features in the artifacts, this technique has been used to investigate various kinds of artifacts, composed of different structures and materials. In this work, an overview of its recent applications is presented. In particular, the detection of cold working features in bronze sculpture investigations, of buried features in ancient book bindings, such as their structural characteristics and written scraps re-used in their manufacturing process, and on the investigation of defects and inhomogeneities in illuminations, is reported.
