Paper Abstract

Traditional methods for the removal of unwanted layers from an artwork comprise mechanical or chemical techniques, which often cause (unknown) damage to the object. The Dutch company Art Innovation has developed and realized an innovative laser restoration tool for non-contact cleaning of painted artworks. Accurate beam manipulation techniques in combination with on-line detection equipment make the system suitable for selective cleaning of delicate surfaces.
