Application of Micro-Damaged Testing Methods in the Analysis of Ancient Silk Material
The ancient silk fabrics are important signs of the development of textile technology. Based on the micro-sampling, this paper discusses the application of micro-damaged testing methods in the analysis of ancient silk materials, which includes the Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS) and infrared spectrum (FTIR). By testing the ancient silk, the elementary compositions and the contents of the materials can be obtained by EDS, which provides evidence for the inference of their applications and storage environment. The composition and structure of the materials can be obtained by FTIR, which serves as the basis of the study on the degradation status.
