In the field of investigation and diagnosis of artwork surfaces our department has improved the technological level in our country by introducing the laser spectrochemical investigation devices LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) and LIF (Laser Induced Fluorescence). Both investigation devices are developed within our laboratory also being transportable on field and can deliver real-time results on site, each one having been awarded with national patents.

In this section you can also learn about other important and complementary photonic investigation and diagnosis techniques and devices in our lab, all of them following the same principles: non-contact, non-invasive and not-destructive.
