Abstract
The surfaces and internal structures of historical stained glass samples of windows from some European cathedrals were analysed with the aid of non-destructive X-ray computed tomography. In order to evaluate different stages in the conservation and restoration processes, two different approaches of X-ray radiation have been used: laboratory based X-ray tomography and synchrotron based phase contrast tomography. During this study, diverse sets of glass samples were scanned with both techniques in order to visualize and quantify weathering processes, treatments with restoration products and re-treatments. The experiments were performed during the FP6 CONSTGLASS-project (Conservation materials for stained glass windows – assessment of treatments, studies on reversibility and performance of innovative restoration strategies and products).
