Determination of a Working Range for the Laser Cleaning of Soiled Silk
Nanosecond laser (532 nm) cleaning of soiled silk (naturally aged and new fabrics) is discussed in terms of an adequate choice of the processing parameters laser fluence and pulse number to achieve a satisfying cleaning effect and to avoid damage of the sensitive textiles. Experimental limits will be presented and compared to theoretical considerations utilizing graphite as a model for the soil.
