Showcase lecture: Chemical imaging of art, archaeology and palaeontology
14 Nov 2012
On Wednesday 21 November (3-4.30pm) with Phil Manning at The Manchester Museum.
This talk will explore the application of synchrotron-based imaging that yields high resolution (2-100 micron) and highly sensitive (parts per million) chemical maps of large (up to 1 metre square) archaeological artefacts, works of art and fossil remains. The 'chemical ghosts' that can be non-destructively imaged in the x-ray part of the electromagnetic spectrum are revealing exciting new information on some very old material.
