Abstract: A new laser-based spectroscopic technique, called calibration-free LIPS (laser-induced plasma spectroscopy), is proposed for fast and precise elemental analysis in the field of cultural heritage conservation and study. Quantitative stratigraphic results, obtained by CF-LIPS on ancient Roman frescoe samples, are shown. The application of this calibration-free procedure frees the LIPS technique from the need of reference samples or an internal standard. This characteristic, along with the intrinsic speed (the whole process of data collection and analysis takes a few minutes) and precision (of the order of a few parts percent) make the CF-LIPS a viable technique for in situ quantitative analysis of artworks.
