Science - X-Ray Analysis
Apr. 29, 2010
Material analysis in art historical research provides information on dating, tracing the process of origin and state of preservation of art objects. Usually XRF and optical spectroscopy are used to study pigments in paintings. However these methods suffer from poor spatial resolution and therefore can not be used for the analysis of the layer structure of paintings. In these cases high resolution methods like SEM/EDX are indispensable.
