Research Infrastructure

CNR Istituto Nazionale di Ottica

Description A set of unique portable instruments developed by the AD Group of CNR-INO is available for non-invasive in-situ measurements of artworks. This collection of mobile instruments consists of scanning devices for the multi-spectral reflectography of painted surfaces (scanner for multi-spectral IR reflectography and RGB image; scanner for multi-spectral imaging in the VIS-NIR range) and scanning devices for the profilometry of small areas of artworks (scanning confocal microscope; scanning micro-profilometer). Teams of CNR-INO scientists and highly qualified technicians will operate the portable instruments on the field, helping the User in analyzing and understanding the results of the measurements in a context of collaboration and knowledge transfer. To access the CNR-INO instruments, a specific application by the User Group Leader is required, describing the scientific background of the proposed project, the planned measurements, the objectives, the expected results, highlighting the reason for the need of portable equipments. Proposals are selected by an internal CNR-INO panel, including qualified experts of the OPD. The selection is based on the scientific quality and originality of the scientific proposal. The level of expertise of the user group to choose the proper instrumentation, to conduct the proposed experiment, to analyze the final data, will be also taken into account.
