(LLHS) Transnational Access Provision to Research Infraestructures IPERION HS.

Transnational Access Provision by the Laser Laboratory for Heritage Science (LLHS). 25 – 29 Oct 2021.

From October 25 to October 29, we received Carla Machado, NOVA School of Science and Technology from the Conservation and Restoration Department and Vicarte Research Unit (Portugal), to provide her access to the facilities, laboratories and research expertise at the Institute of Physical Chemistry Rocasolano in Madrid. This was done via FIXLAB access to research infrastructures in the mainframe of the European Project IPERION HS.

In the framework of the study «Non-invasive characterisation of grisaille paints on stained-glass windows» there were analysed stained glass fragments and samples from different European contexts and centuries with LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy), LIF (Laser Induced Fluorescence) and Nonlinear Optical Microscopy (NLOM) in the modality of Multiphoton Excitation Fluorescence.

Some of the beautiful samples she brought to the laboratory.

These techniques and the scientific expertise provided by the Laser Laboratory of Heritage Science research group will allow to get information regarding the chemical composition and thickness of the grisaille paint layers in a non-destructive way, without sampling.

This access provision has been successfully provided thanks to IPERION HS. You can apply too free of charge. Next call is already open and you can apply until November 30th.

The catalogue includes access to several techniques and laboratories all over Europe in the field of Heritage Science through FIXLAB. Also there is access to mobile equipment and related competencies in MOLAB. Also access to organized scientific information in largely unpublished datasets from archives of prestigious European museums, galleries and research institutions is provided through ARCHLAB.

Or you can consult their expert desk at: userhelpdesk@iperionhs.eu
