The ISAAC research group was established to further develop the use of optical imaging and sensing instruments for in-situ applications in heritage science. A mobile lab was established for this purpose and has been running for over 10 years providing access to the international community engaged in the research and preservation of cultural heritage.

Our mobile laboratory gives access to:

  •  Unique in-house developed cutting-edge mobile imaging and spectroscopy instruments (funded by UK Research Council grants); 

  • State-of-the-art and bespoke instruments for art conservation, history and archaeology that complements the above;

  • Expertise in heritage science.
