We were intruiged by a recent University of Melbourne presentation introducting laser cleaning for conservation and cultural heritage applications. The presentation introduced the science of what happens during laser cleaning treatments when laser pulses interact with different materials, important safety protocols and the general benefits and logistics of using environmentally friendly laser cleaning as an alternative to chemical, abrasive or mechanical methods. Treatments where lasers were used in combination with traditional conservation methods were also be discussed, as well as examples of successful applications and the limitations of laser technology.
Here's a video from a laser cleaning company:
The technology should undoubtedly have application in cemeteries, so we've set up some links and information in the CCANSW Business Directory, under the Laser Cleaning & Restoration category.
