In April 2015, CP7 researcher Teun Baar visited the Fraunhofer-Institute Darmstadt as part of his secondment. During the visit, a psychophysical experiment was conducted to assess the influence of texture on the perception of gloss and visa versa, using printed samples. The aim of the research was to acquire an improved understanding of the perception of these two aspects for 3D printed samples of which the gloss level was controlled.
CP7 researcher Irina Ciortan visited Océ Paris in March 2015 to learn about work done by researcher Teun Baar in the project and discuss future results expected in the project. Irina did visit the Center for Research and Restoration of Museums of France as well to meet Mr. Ruven Pillay and learn about the research activities related to the conservation and restoration of cultural heritage items, in particular of paintings pertaining to the collections of the Museums in France. Irina Ciortan is currently working on “Spectral Imaging and Reproduction of Paintings”.
