29 JUNE- 03 JULY ● 2020
IESL-FORTH, Heraklion, Crete, Greece
Join us for an exciting journey to Crete to become acquainted with the latest developments on non-invasive optical technologies and explore their field applications in Cultural Heritage research and conservation.
SUMMER COURSE AIMS AND CONTENT
The aim of OPTO-CH 2020 summer course is two-fold:
- to introduce participants to the applications of advanced laser-based technologies in Heritage Science,
- to present the latest developments of IPERION-CH.gr (E-RIHS.gr) the Heritage Science node of the cross-disciplinary National Research Infrastructure HELLAS-CH operating at FORTH.
Application deadline: April 26
Notice of acceptance: April 30
OPTO-CH 2020 summer course: 29 June – 03 July 2020
Lectures from experts on modern laser diagnostic and analytical techniques and laser cleaning methodologies will be combined with practical demonstrations and laboratory hands-on sessions. Field experiments on-site at a selected monument in Crete will follow in order to demonstrate the applicability of the techniques in practice.
The last day will be dedicated to IPERION-CH.gr; experts of FORTH researching on a wide range of heritage disciplines will present their work within the interdisciplinary concept of this national RI.
A. LECTURES ON LASER ANALYSIS AND CONSERVATION:
Materials analysis with Optical Spectroscopy (LIBS, Raman, Diffuse Reflectance)
Optical coherence metrology for structural diagnosis
Imaging and mapping; multispectral, photoacoustic and THz
Laser cleaning principles and methodologies
B. SPECIAL LECTURE:
Soon to be announced.
Maximum number of participants: 15
The OPTO-CH concept relies on a) strong and effective interaction between participants and instructors and b) detailed practical demonstration and hands-on sessions. Therefore participants will be organized in four (3) groups of five (5).
Participants are invited to present case studies they are involved in and discuss challenges that might be addressed by optical diagnostic techniques.
The successful applicants will be selected on the basis of their merit and background.
The course-fee is funded by the HELLAS -CH, a cross-disciplinary National Research Infrastructure (NRI).
Travel, accommodation or subsistence expenses should be covered by the participants.
