OPTO-CH series of Summer Courses


The OPTO-CH series of Summer Courses on “Laser technologies in Cultural Heritage analysis, diagnosis and conservation”, which since 2014 has involved about 100 young researchers and professional conservators from more than 20 counties.

The aim of the “OPTO-CH series of Summer Courses” is to introduce participants to applications of advanced laser-based technologies in Heritage  Science (HS).

Lectures from experts on modern laser diagnostic, analytical techniques and cleaning methodologies are combined with practical demonstrations, hands-on sessions in the laboratory, and on-site field tests.
