LASER SYNTHESIS and POLYGNOSIS; The POLITEIA Documentation System and Knowledge Platform

November 23- 27, 2015

IESL-FORTH, Heraklion, Crete, Greece



LASER SYNTHESIS and POLYGNOSIS workshop will introduce participants to the use of the documentation System and the knowledge platform that have been developed in the framework of POLITEIA with the aim to archive and handle the multifaceted data recorded upon the use of modern laser diagnostic and analytical techniques developed at IESL-FORTH. This training workshop aims to bridge the gap between Conservation and Laser Science and is a collaborative outcome of the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) and the Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH) on the basis of research conducted at FORTH.

The workshop is addressed to young scientists experienced to the use of these laser analytical and diagnostic techniques with the objective to evaluate the two tools, LASER SYNTHESIS and POLYGNOSIS, and optimise their use and applicability in order to make new knowledge on laser technologies more reachable and comprehensible to CH professionals and scholars.


The lectures will introduce participants to the structure and use of the developed Documentation System and Knowledge Platform. In parallel the general concepts and principles of operation of each laser-based technique with emphasis on their data recording, manipulation and post-processing will be also highlighted. Practical work on the introduction of data from selected examples and case studies into the SYNTHESIS and POLYGNOSIS tools is also foreseen.


  • Documentation Systems and Knowledge Platforms
  • Materials analysis with Optical Spectroscopy (LIBS, Raman)
  • Optical coherence metrology for structural diagnosis
  • Imaging and mapping; multispectral, multi-photon and THz


Maximum number of participants: 10

The workshop concept relies on a) strong and effective interaction between participants and instructors and b) team work on uploading and manipulating data. Therefore participants will be organized in five groups of two


The course-fee is funded by the KRIPIS-POLITEIA research project
