Physics for Cultural Heritage
- Brief Description
The group dealing with applications on Cultural Heritage carries out researches aimed at the creation of prototypes and at the development of innovative technologies. The performed activities are in the field of optical (reflectance spectroscopy) and atomic (XRF) techniques for the identification of ancient materials; infrared reflectography and radiography of paintings; thermography applied to historical buildings and stone materials for humidity studies. The group collaborates with Superintendences of Cultural Heritage, museums, galleries, restorers and conservators for the characterization of archaeological material and collections of paintings. In addition, the group applies the fission-track radiometric method to dating of archaeological and geological obsidian samples. To our knowledge, in Italy, this last activity is performed only by our group.
