Five heritage institutions around Australia are collaborating with researchers from the Australian National University and the Mediterranean University in Marseille, France, in an Australian Research Council funded threeyear project to develop short pulse (femtosecond) lasers for conservation. Progress so far has included the setup of a picosecond laser at the ANU and comparative testing of a range of long and short pulse lasers on samples of painted metal and gilded wood.
