Heritage Conservation Laboratory

The Heritage Conservation Laboratory in the Faculty of Humanities and Arts is dedicated to foster potential scholars and conduct research in the field of heritage conservation. With advanced equipment, research in the laboratory is divided into the following three sections:

Chemical analysis - Compatibility testing and identification of new or heritage materials are performed in a preliminary testing stage where critical scientific data is collected as the basis for further conservation projects.

Micro/Nano-scale analysis - Precision analysis in micro/nano scale to observe material matching and reactions, including color system analysis (colorimetry), mineral structures analysis (petrography), aggregate materials analysis in construction.

Accelerating weathering (environment simulation) - Employing scientific instruments and quantitative methods to conduct accelerating weathering of samples from original relics or restoration materials, aiming to obtain the aging mechanisms in different environments.

Through the sections mentioned above, the Lab not only provides a research platform for heritage characterization, conservation and restoration, but also offers comprehensive plans to address restoration issues in relation to cultural relics. In addition, post-restoration protection advice as well as environmental monitoring system can be prepared by experienced conservators for artifact exhibition and storage.
