Paper Abstract

This paper presents trade-off studies of encrustation removing from a relief slab, utilizing a laser emitting four wavelengths from UV to IR. The source of radiation was ReNOVALaser 2 device, generating radiation wavelengths of 1.064 micrometers , 0.532 micrometers , and 0.266 micrometers . The results of investigations are presented on a diagram showing ablation speed as a function of irradiation for four wavelengths.
