THz technology in the field of art restoration

The restoration of historic art objects requires a gentle treatment of the often very valuable objects. Therefore a precise and noninvasive analysis of already existing damages, of used painting techniques and materials is necessarily done in the forefield. After the successful restoration, the quality of the work is to be examined.

The objective of this thesis is to examine different objects of art imaging with THz radiation and to evaluate for which task in the field of art restoration the THz technology is suitable.

The research is done in close collaboration with leading research groups in the field of art restoration.
