COLORIMETRY AND SPECTROPHOTOMETRY
... Colorimetry is the use of the human eye
to determine the concentration of coloured
Spectrophotometry is the use of instruments to
make the same measurements. It extends the
range of possible measurements beyond those that
can be determined by the eye alone.

So, what color we see depends on WL of light our eyes absorb.

One technique to suppress the crosstalk associated with
nonlinear storage is to control the carrier's transmission
geometry. The dev ...

to us if it reflects light of a wavelength around 550
nm. Most insects are black or brown because of
a pigment called melanin that is embedded in the

insects appear black to us. Native chitin, the bas ...

Conservation and restoration of photographs
The Conservation and restoration of photographs is the study of the physical care and treatment of photographic materials. It covers both efforts undertaken by photograph conservators, librarians, archivists, and museum curators who manage photograph collections at a variety of cultural heritage institutions, as well as steps taken to preserve collections of personal and family photographs. It is an umbrella term that includes both preventative preservation activities such as environmental control and conservation techniques that involve treating individual items. Both preservation and conservation require an in-depth understanding of how photographs are made, and the causes and prevention of deterioration. Conservator-restorers use this knowledge to treat photographic materials, stabilizing them from further deterioration, and sometimes restoring them for aesthetic purposes.While conservation can improve the appearance of a photograph, image quality is not the primary purpose of conservation. Conservators will try to improve the visual appearance of a photograph as much as possible, while also ensuring its long-term survival and adhering the profession's ethical standards. Photograph conservators also play a role in the field of connoisseurship. Their understanding of the physical object and its structure makes them uniquely suited to a technical examination of the photograph, which can reveal clues about how, when, and where it was made.Photograph preservation is distinguished from digital or optical restoration, which is concerned with creating and editing a digital copy of the original image rather than treating the original photographic material. Photograph preservation does not normally include moving image materials, which by their nature require a very different approach. Film preservation concerns itself with these materials.
