REFLECTED ENERGY MATCHING AS A CONSERVATION TOOL by Ruth Ellen Miller and Jack V. MillerThe definitive study of fading and photochemical damage, this book adds ten years of additional research to Evaluating Fading Characteristics of Light Sources and Fading of Fugitive Colors By Museum Light Sources. Reflected Energy Matching defines the physical interactions of light and matter and shows actual ISO blue wool fading tests to evaluate common museum lighting sources.
It then shows how it is possible to tune exhibit light to practically eliminate fading and photochemical damage. Actual test results again using ISO blue wool fade test materials and fugitive water color dyes in a number of colors document 60 percent to 90+ percent reductions in fading. Simply eliminating non-visible radiation from light sources can extend exhibit life by 5 times. Proper Reflected Energy Matching can increase this to 70 to 100 times.
Reflected Energy Matching Theory has been called the most important advance in conservation science of the century. Learn the details in this simple, easy to understand but profound book. Protect your collection from photochemical damage while actually increasing visibility with the principles in this book.
Deluxe paperback. Contains actual color prints of fading tests in five colors so that you can evaluate the data. If you only read one conservation book in your career, read this one! $30.00 TOTAL (includes all handling fees and shipping by Priority Mail or UPS Ground)
