Curators have developed preventive conservation strategies and usually try to control the temperature (T) and relative humidity (RH) variations in the museum rooms to stabilise the artworks. The control systems chosen by museums depend on the size and age of the building, the financial means and the strategies that can be adapted. However, there is...
Article
The quantitative determination of heavy metals in aquatic products is of great importance for the food security issues. Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) has been used in a variety of foodstuffs analysis, but is still limited by its low sensitivity when targeting on the trace heavy metals. In this work, we compared three sample enrichment...

Active thermography was used as a multispectral non-destructive approach for characterisation of multi-layered panel paintings and analysis of their defects caused by aging and environmental effects. Two oil compositions painted on canvas, provided by C2RMF in the Louvre museum (Centre de Recherche et de Restauration des Musées de France) were unde...
Article
The carbon content distribution of ferrous archaeological artefacts in a quantitative way allows us to understand the nature of the materials. Our previous works have ever proved that the use of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) could be an efficient method to solve problems of in situ analysis and offer a high spatial resolution. To asse...
Article
Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) is a versatile elemental analytical technique whose basic elements were described as early as 1962, shortly after the invention of a pulsed laser. Since that time, LIBS has been applied for elemental characterization of various applications. In this work, we review the evolution of LIBS characterization o...

In this work, we study the possibilities of stimulated Infrared Thermography for NaCl detection in Avignon calcareous stones. We show experimentally that the presence of salts leads to an increase in local thermal effusivity and to a decrease in maximum temperature induced by the photothermal flash analyze. We show then, that measurement of these p...
Article
Nowadays, Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is frequently used for in situ analyses to identify pigments from mural paintings. Nonetheless, in situ analyses require a robust instrumentation in order to face to hard experimental conditions. This may imply variation of fluencies and thus inducing variation of LIBS signal, which degrades spe...
