Development of modular laser technologies designed for cleaning contaminants from stone and metal surfaces
Realization period:01.01. 2021 – 31.12. 2024
Leader at TUL:Ing. Martin Seidl, Ph.D.
The aim of the project is the design and construction of an innovative mobile laser device for cleaning difficult-to-remove surface layers (graphites, organic and inorganic deposits, etc.) both in exteriors and interiors (from house facades, monuments, engine and railway cleaning, etc.) from a wide range of base materials (stones, metals or potentially wood, etc.). The developed technology will be presented by two concepts (picosecond fiber lasers and CO2 lasers), both of which will ensure effective removal of surface layers while minimizing damage to the substrate. The developed technology will be contactless, non-abrasive and environmentally friendly.
