Classification of Patinas Found on Surfaces of Historical Buildings by Means of Laser-Induced Breakd
This study deals with the analysis and characterisation of historic patinas on Spanish buildings from the sixteenth and seventeenth century by means of laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). Indicative results from the analysis of these samples are shown. LIBS can be proven as an appropriate technique to characterise patinas and assist in a rapid and facile classification. The prospect of developing portable LIBS equipment makes the technique attractive for carrying out analyses on site.
