Abstract: This paper presents a novel approach in non-destructive analysis of inkjet-printed documents. Our method is based on the combination of molecular spectroscopy in the Near Infrared Region (NIR) and a chemometric method – principal component analysis (PCA). The aim of this work was to prepare spectral data for the analysis of the interrelationships between 19 samples consisting of the same type of office paper on which black squares were full printed in black ink only. The spectra were obtained separately using the Ocean Optics System in two spectral regions, i.e., overtones: 1000 – 1600 nm and combination bands: 1600 – 2300 nm, with the paper base. Experimental results confirmed the high reliability of the proposed approach despite the sparse dataset.
Keywords: NIR spectra pre-processing, principal component analysis
