Contribution of materials science to the study and preservation of cultural heritage (paintings, icons, ceramics, etc.)

Art conservation and diagnosis has been improved with the application of modern analytical techniques. These techniques are implemented with the intent to provide answers to questions related to archaeological artefacts and works of art.Researchers accumulate the huge amount of knowledge that has been gathered in related scientific disciplines and apply the advanced techniques that have been developed in the long tradition of the physical sciences.
