The CNR ISPC contribution to TECHNART 2023

The 2023 edition of TECHNART, the international conference on analytical techniques in art and cultural heritage took place in Lisbon on May 7-12.

The aim of the conference is to provide a scientific forum to present and promote the use of analytical techniques in the field of art and cultural heritage worldwide to stimulate contacts and exchange experiences, making a bridge between science and art.

Conference topics

  • X-ray analysis (XRF, PIXE, XRD, SEM-EDX)
  • Confocal X-ray microscopy (3D µ-XRF, 3D µ-PIXE)
  • Synchrotron, ion beam and neutron-based techniques/instrumentation
  • FT-IR and Raman spectroscopy and microscopy
  • UV-Vis and NIR absorption/reflectance and fluorescence
  • Laser-based analytical methods (LIBS etc.)
  • Magnetic resonance techniques
  • Chromatography (GC, HPLC) and mass spectrometry
  • Optical and coherent imaging techniques
  • Mobile spectrometry and spectroscopy
  • Remote sensing and hyperspectral imaging
  • Case studies employing one or more analytical methods

The conference saw the participation of scientists from all over the world.

The CNR ISPC participated with 5 research laboratories specialised in the conference topics (XRAYLab, Raman Spectroscopy Lab, Novel Approaches and Technologies for Heritage Conservation Lab, DHiLab and Heritage Materials Science Lab), 10 presentations, 8 co-authors presentations and 14 posters.

The 2025 edition will be organised in Italy by CNR ISPC and CNR SCITEC along with
