MOLAB Italy: CNR – INO (IT)
The activities of the CNR-INO are in the field of advanced research in optics and optoelectronics, quantum optics and information processing. Since 1990, the Gruppo Beni Culturali (GBC, Art Diagnostics Group) at CNR-INO has been studying applications of optical techniques and developing instruments for non‐invasive analysis on Heritage objects. The GBC collaborates both with institutions of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage, and with prominent international research centres, conservation institutes and museums.
Partner of Eu‐ARTECH and CHARISMA, CNR-INO was strongly involved in the development of new portable instruments and innovative methodologies for in situ diagnostics. Examples of successful instruments are the scanners for high‐resolution multi‐spectral imaging in the visible and near IR, and in terms of new methodologies, in recent years, CNR-INO has introduced both multi‐spectral Infrared reflectography and Thermal Quasi‐Reflectography. The institute has been providing TNA since the beginning of the Eu‐ARTECH project under the MOLAB program.
