Infrared Imaging[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

  • Section 6.4.1 of the "AIC Guide to Digital Photography and Conservation Documentation" (Warda et al. 2017, pp. 130-131) presents the history of infrared photography.


Infrared regions and sensitivity of cameras and imagers[edit | edit source]

  • Section 6.4.2 of the "AIC Guide to Digital Photography and Conservation Documentation" (Warda et al. 2017, p. 131) discusses infrared regions and sensitivity of cameras and imagers. Table 7 provides a summary of these regions, the wavelength ranges, and corresponding recording medium or sensor type.


Terminology[edit | edit source]

The following definitions are from Section 6.4.3 of the "AIC Guide to Digital Photography and Conservation Documentation" (Warda et al. 2017, pp. 131-132):

  • Reflected infrared digital photography (or a reflected infrared digital photograph): Imaging or images made in the 700-1000 nm range and thus are within the abilities of digital cameras
  • Infrared reflectography (or an infrared reflectogram): Imaging or images made in the 1000-2500 nm range and thus are within the ability of typical electronic infrared imagers
  • Transmitted infrared digital photography (or an infrared digital photograph): Imaging or images made in the 700-1000 nm range and thus are within the abilities of digital cameras
