Alessia Artesani has worked at the Center for Cultural Heritage Technology since the 2019. She jointed the CCHT as Post-Doc in characterisation and protection of CH materials research line. Following the Bachelor and Master Degree in Physics at University of Milan (2014), she received her PhD degree in Physics at the Politecnico of Milan (2019) with a thesis on the study of semiconductor materials employed as pigments in modern age. More broadly, she worked on the analysis of ancient and modern cultural heritage materials using optical and spectroscopic techniques. She specialized in time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy on crystalline semiconductors and she is interested in studies on optical properties of materials. In her research career, she collaborated with various international teams: on top, she contributed to the development of cryogenic device to investigate the luminescent signals of dosimetric materials at the Luminescent Lab of Durham University (UK) and she worked on the characterization of interaction mechanisms between metal oxide and oil media at the Chemie ParieTech Lab (FR). She delivered oral presentations in the most important national and international congresses on scientific methods applied to Cultural Heritage and she published in peer-reviewed international journals in the field of materials, chemists and applied physics.
