1 May 2017 Fluorescence lifetime estimation using a dynamic vision sensor
Author Affiliations +
A current focus of art conservation research seeks to accurately identify materials, such as oil paints or pigments, used in a work of art. Since many of these materials are fluorescent, measuring the fluorescence lifetime following an excitation pulse is a useful non-contact, quantitative method to identify pigments. In this project, we propose a simple method using a dynamic vision sensor to efficiently characterize the fluorescence lifetime of a common pigment named Egyptian Blue, which is consistent with x-ray techniques. We believe our fast, compact and cost-effective method for fluorescence lifetime analysis is useful in art conservation research and potentially a broader range of applications in chemistry and materials science.
