Remote laser-induced fluorescence imaging for assessment of cultural heritage

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

In this paper, we propose to perform remote laser-induced fluorescence imaging for assessment of cultural heritage. The experiments are performed using the lidar system consist of frequency-tripled Nd:YAG laser at 355 nm with a spot size of ~4 cm diameter and the signal is collected using a coaxial 40-cm-diameter Newtonian telescope. The fluorescence light is focused into an optical fibre and guided a time-gated optical multichannel analyser system, where the fluorescence spectrum is recorded. Then the laser directed to the next point and thus a fluorescence image can be produced
