Laser operator for cultural heritage cleaning

Donnerstag, 16. September 2021 bis Samstag, 18. September 2021 09:00 - 17:30

Presentation

The aim of the course is to present - with theoretical lectures and practical activities - the operating principles and characteristics of the most important laser equipment currently used in cultural heritage, in order that a conservator-restorer could gain a basic understanding on how to use the appropriate equipment for different situations. The variety and complexity of topics related to the use of lasers for cleaning cultural heritage will not allow for an in-depth presentation of all topics. During the course, however, the tools will be provided to introduce an informed use of laser instruments according to the needs of the different types of intervention, with particular attention to cleaning operations.

Through the presentation of significant case studies and the practical exercises on replicas, it will be possible to observe the characteristics and advantages of this operational methodology and to recognise the potential risks for both the works of art and the user. At the end of the course, a theoretical-practical test will verify the level of learning achieved. For Italian professionals, a certificate will be issued for the use of laser equipment according to the regulations in force in Italy. 

The course will be taught by an interdisciplinary team of lecturers, scientific experts, technicians and conservators with proven experience in this field.

Aim 

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • know the operating principles and characteristics of the main laser instruments;
  • understand the criteria for choosing different instruments;
  • know the diagnostic procedures for assessing the interaction with the support;
  • set application parameters;
  • know the correct maintenance of the equipment;
  • become aware of the risks when using a laser; 
  • adopt appropriate personal protection measures.

 

Participants   

The course is open to professionals working in conservation and restoration.
