Our team has been busy this autumn installing new Compact Phoenix systems in the Conservation departments of the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum in Braunschweig, Germany (founded in 1754, one of the oldest museums in Europe) and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas (one of the largest art museums in the world). Training at both museums was carried out over a couple of days with theoretical and practical work using the NdYAG and ErYAG laser handpieces. The lasers will be very useful additions to the techniques available to the conservators at both locations and we look forward to hearing about the role the lasers play in future conservation challenges.
