Paper Abstract

ARCOS is a high speed double beam spectrophotometer system which determines contact-free the spectral and topographic data of any of the single cells of e.g. a picture in form of an identification index (IID). The IID is a measure for the agreement/disagreement between two cells as of their material pigment composition (resin, binder, additive, etc.). A period comparison of two paintings (attributed to picasso) is done and the results of IID are shown as 3D graphic.
