Fluorescence lidar multispectral imaging for diagnosis of historical monuments - Övedskloster, a Swedish case study

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

A fluorescence lidar measurement has been performed on the castle Övedskloster in Sweden. A mobile system from the Lund University was placed at ~40 m distance from the sandstone façade. The lidar system, which uses a frequency-tripled Nd:YAG laser with a 355-nm pulsed beam, induces fluorescence in each target point. Areas were studied by using whisk-broom scans. The possibility of detecting biodeteriogens on the surface and characterization of materials was confirmed. The method can be a tool for conservation planning and status control of the architectural heritage where fluorescence light can point out features that are not normally visible under natural illumination.
