Lasers in the Preservation of Cultural Heritage: Principles and Applications (Optics and Optoelectronics)

Buy
The book … describes how laser parameters associated with cleaning are chosen and the physics involved in various surface ablation processes. Key conservation practices are also addressed, such as removal of black encrustation from stone, varnish from paintings, and the laser cleaning of metals and paper. It details the use and benefit of diagnostics tools such as LIBS, Raman spectroscopy, and holography.
-Ed Teppo, Founder and Former President of Big Sky Laser Technologies, Inc.

With the maturation of laser technology in diagnostic and conservation applications, conservation scientists, archeologists, art historians, researchers, and advanced science-oriented students now have the tools necessary for preserving the future of our past-our cultural heritage. Presenting recent developments in the field, Lasers in the Preservation of Cultural Heritage: Principles and Applications addresses the basic concepts of laser applications and supplies case studies of analytical, structural diagnostic, and laser cleaning applications. The book provides a comprehensive presentation of the fundamental principles and applications of modern laser technology in the analysis of composition, diagnostics of structural integrity, and conservation of artworks and antiquities.

Beginning with an introduction to the basic techniques used in art conservation and archeology, the book describes the fundamental aspects of laser-matter interactions, emphasizing laser diagnostics and laser processing applications. The next few chapters focus on laser-based spectroscopic techniques for the analysis of the composition of materials in art and archaeology, including laser-induced breakdown, Raman, and laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopic techniques. The book proceeds to highlight nondestructive diagnostic techniques, laser processing applications, laser applications for the cleaning of paintings and stone, and methods for the removal of encrustations. It concludes with case studies for the conservation of materials like parchment, paper, metal, ivory, and wood, and includes conservation approaches for modern paintings. Bridging science with art, Lasers in the Preservation of Cultural Heritage presents a systematic overview of the fundamentals and applications of laser techniques in artwork conservation and archeological science.

The Definitive Guide to NetBeans Platform
The Definitive Guide to NetBeans Platform
The best way to improve what you do is to find someone who will do it for you better than you could have done yourself. I’ve seen this principle in action over and over again. For example, it was fine designing the NetBeans IDE and NetBeans Platform on my own. Now, however, it is much better, since there are far more talented developers...

Aspects of Soft Computing, Intelligent Robotics and Control (Studies in Computational Intelligence)

Soft computing, as a collection of techniques exploiting approximation and tolerance for imprecision and uncertainty in traditionally intractable problems, has become very effective and popular especially because of the synergy derived from its components. The integration of constituent technologies provides complementary methods that allow...
