The overarching aim of this project is to leverage exciting technical opportunities presented by recent advances in photonic and computational technologies to reveal new insights and knowledge of objects forming part of our cultural heritage, such as historical and contemporary paintings, polychrome sculpture and historic decorative scheme of interiors, buildings and monuments. Our objective is to create a process where current knowledge and conventional techniques from the technical art history community are used to inform the development of smart ICT strategies such as spectral compressive sensing and 4D spatio-spectral imaging
You will have a PhD in an area cognate to the project - ideally in infrared femtosecond laser microscopy or spectroscopic imaging. Demonstrable experience in the construction of laser systems and/or imaging systems, for example sub-surface laser-scanning microscopes or optical coherence tomography systems. A record of high quality publications, and evidence of contribution to the writing of these publications proportionate to your opportunity and career stage
