We are delighted to learn that our latest review article entitled “Listening to laser light interactions with objects of art: a novel photoacoustic approach for diagnosis and monitoring of laser cleaning interventions” has just been published in the prestigious “Heritage Science” journal.

In this review, we present our novel work during the last 5 years as regards the application of photoacoustic technologies towards the protection, preservation and enhancement of our cultural heritage. For the first time worldwide, we demonstrate our experimentally proven powerful methodologies which can be employed in a variety of cultural heritage objects such as paintings, multilayered documents, sculptures and stonework.
We believe that the introduced photoacoustic approaches have the potential to shape the future of diagnostic and monitoring techniques in heritage science, paving the way for more relevant contributions in this emerging research field. Lasers for Art’s Sake IESL – FORTH
