Final Report - PROMET (Developing new analytical techniques and materials for monitoring and protecting metal artefacts and monuments from the Mediterranean region)
Project ID: 509126Funded under: FP6-INCO
This is the final report of the PROMET project, which developed new strategies to monitor the corrosion of metal objects using the state-of-the-art portable techniques of Laser- induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and micro-X-ray fluorescence (micro-XRF). The report begins with some background on the challenges of cultural heritage preservation as focused into metallic collections and then states the project's objectives. It explains the methodologies followed and presents the collections studied. It elaborates on the experiments conducted, the technology used and the findings for each case study. Finally, there is a reference on the knowledge dissemination activities and plans.
