Partner Universidad Autónoma de Campeche (UAC)
The National Laboratory of Science for Conservation and Research of Cultural Heritage from the Corrosion Research Center (LANCIC-CICORR, UAC), is focused in studies about environmental degradation of cultural heritage. Have intense collaborative research with national institutions concerning to evaluat degradation mechanisms, environmental effects on materials and archaeometric characterization of cultural properties. Have advanced analytical infrastructure for evaluation of chemical and physical properties of materials from cultural heritage.
Role and Profile of key people
PhD Javier Reyes Trujeque (M): Professor Researcher at Corrosion Research Center from Autonomous University of Campeche. He is specialist on study the effects of environment on cultural properties, application of no destructive diagnostic techniques for building heritage and materials characterization techniques of archaeological and historic materials.
Key Research Facilities, Infrastructure and Equipment
At LANCIC-CICORR, UAC , we have specialized infrastructure on materials characterization, evaluation and diagnostic of cultural properties under effects of environmental parameters. Our analytical infrastructure is based on DRX, SEM/EDS, FTIR, RAMAN, FTR, Optical microscopy and measure of physical properties such as colour, Ultrasound transmission, hardness, rugosity, and electrical properties, most of them under the concept of non-destructive and portable principles.
Independent research premises
LANCIC-CICORR, UAC have its own infrastructure and complete laboratories specialized in the study of the evolution of cultural materials and conservation of specific treatment under natural and artificial environments.
