Abstract

Terahertz time-domain imaging (THz-TDI) and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) are two techniques capable of providing 3D datasets from which depth profiles and cross-sectional images of an object can be derived. They are novel photonics technologies of particular relevance to the field of heritage science, for which the comprehension of the stratigraphic structure of a cultural heritage object may help in the understanding of its artistic technology and state of preservation. The differences in imaging depth, field of view, and axial/lateral resolutions of the two imaging techniques provide different but complementary information of the same scene. Through the use of multimodal image fusion, the user will benefit from access to a detailed comparison of the information content of the two different datasets and images. To carry this out, we have developed a first data processing chain with the aim of representing THz-TDI and SD-OCT cross-sectional images in a unique image grid and space, in which the different datasets are dimensionally consistent.
