Determination of conditions to prevent weathering due to condensation, particle deposition and micro-organism growth on ancient stained glass windows with protective glazing

Objective

The research made in Sainte Chapelle-France & Cathedral of Cologne-Germany with a multidisciplinary team, is based on both laboratory study/simulation and field surveys. The final goal is to provide methodology and thresholds of danger to preserve stained glass windows with protective glazing. It will be concentrated on monitoring, evaluation and improvement of the environment. Climate and the microclimate will be monitored with automatic devices and field surveys. A new dew point sensor connected with an alarm system will be tested and modified to control the danger of condensation inside the interspace between the two glasses. The glass surface deposition and air content of anthropogenic and natural particles and the microorganisms' growth on samples and the microbial contamination will be studied. Glass sensors will be installed inside, in the interspace and outside Analysis of originals and simulation tests will be done.
