Paper Abstract

The Kodak DCS460IR Digital Camera has been applied in the Hermitage Museum for photographing the museum objects in visual luminescence under UV, in the near IR and for X- radiography in the 10 - 80 kV range using the fluorescent screens. We found the instrument to suit quite well for the qualitative examination, providing the possibility for substitution of the corresponding conventional photographic materials. In case of the near IR the sensor permits to work in the range where the infrachromatic materials are not commercially sensitized. The quantitative estimates for the images were difficult at the same time.
