About

Alessia Artesani jointed the Center for Cultural Heritage Technology in 2019, as Post-Doctoral researcher. She developed her expertise in optical spectroscopy and microscopy employed for investigating artistic and archaeological materials. She specialized in time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy, multi-spectral fluorescent microscopy and Raman spectroscopy, and more recently she gained competency with terahertz time-domain spectroscopy imaging and hyperspectral imaging. Following the Bachelor and Master Degree in Physics at University of Milan (2014), she received her PhD degree in Physics at the Politecnico of Milan (2019) with a thesis on the optical behaviour of semiconductor materials employed as pigments in the modern age, and on the study of their interaction with polymeric natural binders and deterioration of the paint film. More broadly, she is interested in studies related to the optical properties of materials and she is developing her interest in data processing methods and application of computational processes for image restoration. In her research career, she collaborated with various international teams and she was a visiting researcher at the Luminescent Lab of Durham University (UK) and at the Chemie ParisTech Lab (FR). She published 13 papers in peer-reviewed international journals, and two contributions in books in the field of applied physics, material science, and analytical chemistry.
