Novel optical spectroscopy techniques for monitoring the conservation status of works of art

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The knowledge of an artistic surface in terms of both material composition and conservation conditions allows one to correctly plan conservation interventions. Optical and vibrational spectroscopy are excellent non-invasive and easily portable techniques for the chemical characterization of an artistic surface. In details, fluorescence spectroscopy allows one to gather information on organic and luminescent materials, diffuse reflectance spectroscopy can provide information on the main optical absorbers (including inorganic pigments), Raman spectroscopy allows the identification of pigments and minerals in an easy way.

In this context, the present research program is aimed at better understanding the effectiveness of fluorescence, reflectance and Raman spectroscopy as tools for the characterization of an artwork surface.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
