Paper Abstract

A technique is proposed of layer-by-layer laser spectral microanalysis of art pigments, using two-pulse sample atomization with one-shot spectrum registration. The analysis includes on-surface and in-depth profiling of the layer composition. The technique allows to determine distributions of chosen elements along specimen surface. The laser parameters were chosen to obtain regular laser craters of known depth and diameters. The technique has been tested and optimized at the analysis of model samples with known compositions. The proposed method was used for investigation and ascription two painting from Nesvizh Portrait Gallery (Belarus). The results show good prospects of the LIBS as applied to paintings authentication.
