Center of excellence for
restoration by optoelectronic techniques

We are a department within the National Institute for Research and Development for Optoelectronics INOE 2000. Our department carries out researches on advanced techniques for artwork restoration & conservation. Research activities are generated by the new demands from restorers and conservators practice. A significant experience was accumulated in multidisciplinary research projects, and a very special part of the experience and of the gained reputation raised up from various on site collaborations.

Important results were accumulated in laser cleaning, environment control and micro-climate monitoring, non-contact, non and micro-invasive investigation methods, remote fast response techniques for cultural heritage investigation, diagnosis, intervention.
