    Nottingham Trent helps paint picture of Chinese-European history

    Technology developed by Nottingham Trent University is helping unravel the history behind paintings belonging to the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) and Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). Dr Haida Liang, a reader in physics at the university’s School of Science and Technology, is leading a team to use Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), multispectral imaging and other non-invasive and non-contact scientific techniques to analyse watercolours exported by China during the 19th century. The OCT device scans the layers below the surface of an object with infrared light in order to reveal details not visible to the naked eye, such as ...

    1. By using a suite of complementary, non-invasive technologies we're able to uncover just as much information from historic paintings than traditional destructive techniques. This helps to deepen our understanding of art history as it allows us to correlate the material actually found on the paintings with historical records.
