LASER FOR CLEANING WORKS OF ART

January 2016 - Vatican Museums' Restoration Labs

 

Thanks to the support from one of our gracious Patrons, Olessia Kantor, along with the California Chapter, we subsidized the purchase of an Eos Syntesis laser. The Eos Syntesis is the first laser system set up for laser cleaning that allows restorers to tune the pulse duration by nanoseconds to hundredths of a nanosecond to microseconds.

 

The process of cleaning artwork requires the most selective and non-destructive tools so that minimum impact is made on the pictorial layers during cleaning. Laser technology is one of the techniques utilized by modern restoration laboratories because it is a high-tech solution that can be used with traditional cleaning techniques, and it can clean many different materials: stones, stucco, wall paintings, metal and wood. It guarantees the precise cleaning of objects without any damage to the substrate.
