The Imaging & Sensing for Archaeology, Art History & Conservation (ISAAC) mobile laboratory was established in 2006 at Nottingham Trent University to further develop the use of optical imaging and sensing instruments in archaeology, art, history and conservation.

Our mobile laboratory gives access to:

  • state of the art and bespoke instruments for art conservation, history and archaeology communities, around the world;

  • unique in-house developed portable imaging and spectroscopy instruments (funded by UK Research Council grants); and

  • commercial instruments that complement the above.
