  Host: Rez Mani did his M.Eng in Engineering Physics from McMaster University and his PhD in satellite spectroscopic instrumentation from York University. He worked in the industry for nearly 9 years, during which he participated in many optical, laser and spectroscopic projects He returned to York University in 2011 as a researcher and a contract faculty. He currently teaches the course "Atmospheric Pollution" for the department of Natural Science at York University. He has also been collaborating with Allied Scientific Pro as a consultant for more than 6 years and recently as an application scientist for a year.


The webinar gives an introduction to principles of laser ablation with particular emphasis on laser cleaning application. The pros and cons of using laser cleaning as compared to other cleaning methods are described. The parameters of importance as far as the laser and the materials to be worked on are considered. Finally, a few examples of laser cleaning are given including a video demonstration of the laser cleaning system by Allied Scientific Pro in a nuclear decontamination facility.

About: The most recent LACONA conferences have seen a development of the coherent light-based methods for imaging, documentation of objects and structures and monitoring of restoration treatments.

To these three groups of contributions, LACONA XII conference will gather contributions on 3D laser scanning as a tool for  general public mediation within the frame of exhibitions, and also to the possibilities and limitations of 3D artworks reproductions in the field of archeology.

For the second time the LACONA conference is preceded by a one-day workshop for about 50 participants, with demonstrations of a selection of cleaning, analytical and imaging, documentation laser tools.
