Abstract

This paper gives an overview of advanced optical imaging methods relevant to the study of manuscripts. While some of the methods covered are well established, others are very much in active development. ‘Optical’ in this context is loosely defined to cover the near ultraviolet, visible and the near infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Optical imaging methods are in general non-destructive and can be applied in situ. They are non-invasive if care is taken to ensure a safe dosage of illumination during the imaging process. The examples given in this paper are biased towards work that the author has been involved in. This is by no means a comprehensive review. The aim of the paper is to illustrate how advanced optical imaging techniques can assist in the investigation of manuscripts.
