Original Abstract

This work deals with the treatment of the real archaeological artifacts by the low voltage device multi-electrode system in water solutions at applied power of 5 W. Treated samples were beads, waste from blowing glass, pieces from vessels, ingots from glass and ceramics. Different experimental conditions were used. The optimal treatment conditions for cleaning of the samples were at 0.9% water solution of sodium chloride (solution conductivity of 13 mS/cm) and at a distance of treated sample about 1 mm from the multi-electrode head. The treatment process was monitored by optical emission spectroscopy. The changes on the surface were visible and the elements identified by SEM/ EDX analysis.
