Cleaning of artificially soiled papers by infrared and mid-infrared lasers

  • One of the most important materials presenting and witnessing human culture is paper. The cleaning of paper is often necessary because contamination must be removed so that the fragile organic substrate can be preserved. The conventional cleaning methods are mechanical or involve the application of chemicals. These methods can damage drawings or print layers to some extent or make the original paper substrate brittle. More specifically, the use of a scalpel blade can cause damage to fibers. Chemical cleaning is difficult to perform locally, can dissolve foreign matter that then migrates into the paper substrate, or involves volatile organic compounds that can be harmful to the conservator. There is, therefore, a need for new conservation technologies aimed at the safe cleaning of paper. Lasers have proved to be an appropriate tool for cleaning as the energy dose and penetration depth at the specific point of contamination can be controlled.
