As part of the School of Science and Technology Joint seminar programme for the Engineering and Materials and Computing and Informatics Research Centres, Alessandra Vichi, Imperial College, London presents: Chemical imaging of cultural heritage objects at the micro-scale.

Abstract

The development and optimisation of non-destructive analytical techniques to study unique objects of our cultural heritage is vital for conservation scientists. We use advanced spectroscopic imaging approaches to analyse degrading artefacts from museum collections for understanding the causes of physical-chemical degradation and for correctly preserving them for the future generation

This seminar is hosted by Dr Christopher Castleton/ Professor Haida Liang.

All welcome.
