Laser technologies in Cultural Heritage analysis, diagnosis and conservation
June 02-06, 2018
The aim of the OPTO-CH 2018 summer course is two-fold:
a) to introduce participants to applications of advanced laser-based technologies in Cultural Heritage (CH) science, diagnostics, and conservation.
b) to inform them on the latest developments of the H2020 EU project HERACLES research as regards the effective resilience of Heritage monuments against climate events
Lectures from experts on modern laser diagnostic and analytical techniques, as well as on laser cleaning methodologies will be combined with practical demonstrations and laboratory hands-on sessions. In parallel, experts researching on advancing the level of heritage monuments resilience (analysis and understanding of materials’ degradation mechanisms, synthesis of new protective materials, in-situ diagnosis and monitoring as well as ICT technologies) will present the HERACLES concept.
The summer course will conclude with one day of field tests and experiments on-site at the Venetian fortress of Heraklion “Rocca a Mare”.
