The ISAAC research group was established to further develop the use of optical imaging and sensing instruments for in-situ applications in heritage science.


Running for over a decade, our mobile laboratory provides to the international community, engaged in the research and preservation of cultural heritage, 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.
