The analytical laboratory enables material and damage analyses using various methods. The focus is on the objects worked on in the Conservation and Restoration degree programme, including building materials. Interdisciplinary use and commissioned work are possible by arrangement.
Equipment & Use
The analytical laboratory is equipped with analytical devices for the examination of samples of art and cultural objects, building materials and for determining damage processes:
- Incident light microscopy (bright field, dark field, UV excitation)
- Polarisation microscopy (PolMik)
- Wet chemical and microchemical workstations
- Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR)
- Liquid chromatography (HPLC, IC, DC)
- Thermal analysis (TG, DTA, DSC)
- Portabe X-ray fluorescence analysis (pXRF)
- Portable VIS spectroscopy (colour measurement)
- Calcimeter and sieve analysis for building material analyses
In addition, the laboratory has an extensive collection of reference materials for historical and modern materials.
Cooperation with other specialised laboratories expands the analysis possibilities.
