Paper Abstract

Application of Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) for investigation of chemical constitution and stratigraphy of artworks, and metallic objects with multilayer structures is described in the paper. Physical phenomena accompanying LIBS investigations, especially temporal evolution and spectral lines broadening are described. Operational characteristics of experimental equipment are shown. Results obtained with use of two different echelle spectrometers are compared. Pigments used in oil paintings are analyzed and analysis results are presented. Experimental results of measurements of various objects like paintings, sculptures and artifacts are shown. Works on dating of investigated paintings are described.
