Since 2003 my main research field is application of Optical Coherence Tomography(OCT) to the conservation science. This is a relatively new, but nevertheless well-established, technique that offers a unique possibility for determination and visualization of the inner structure of semi-transparent objects which weakly absorb and scatter light. It is non-contact, non-invasive and, most
importantly, safe for the objects tested as long as the exposure is limited to a certain level [49, 62].
Specifically, our research concentrates on:
