FR has experience in the spectroscopic studies of materials for cultural heritage. FR has competences and long experience of vibrational, electronic, and X-rays based spectroscopies both as portable non invasive devices as well as bench top systems, single point and hyperspectral devices. The reseacrh activity may be shynthesized as it follows: a) development and optimization of a multitechnique approach for the non invasive and in situ studies of works of art through the mobile laboratory MOLAB within the european reseach infrastructure for heritage science (ERIHS); b) Studies of historical samples at a micro-scale for unveiling the original constituting materials (stratigraphy), micro-heterogeneities, and degradation mechanisms of paining materials through microspectroscopies such as: micro-Raman, micro-FT-IR(mapping, imaging, in transmission, reflection and ATR mode) and SEM-EDS. c) Structural and spectroscopic studies of complex and innovative materials employed in conservation and restoration
