“Nanotechnology in Art and Art Conservation”

Nanotechnology, the development of materials and devices on the nanometer scale, is promoted as an innovative solution to many of today’s societal and technical challenges. In fact, nanoscale materials have been fabricated and used since ancient times. Among the most beautiful examples are metal nanoparticle-infused Roman glasses, medieval stained glass windows and lusterware-glazed ceramics. The same optical phenomenon that confers beauty to these objects now enables art conservators to analyze coatings, paints and other art materials on museum objects using surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy. Conservation scientists use other types of nanoscale materials to restore and preserve cultural treasures. For example, nanoemulsions and ceramics were used to restore the Assisi frescoes that were damaged by a powerful earthquake in 1997. To complete our tour of nanoscale materials in art and art conservation, we’ll see how new materials such as polyaniline nanofibers are being evaluated for their potential to slow or prevent the corrosion of ancient metal artifacts and modern sculptures.
