Materials analysis

With the state-of-the-art, flexible and extremely versatile infrastructure our facilities offer, questions raised by conservators, restorers, curators or archaeologists can be addressed.

Non-destructive or minimally invasive analysis using micro x-ray fluorescence spectrometry, atomic absorption spectrometry and infrared and Raman spectrometry enables qualitative and quantitative elemental analysis of inorganic and organic materials. The composition of metal alloys, bonding agents, pigments, dyes, precious and semi-precious stones, corrosion products or preservatives can be determined.
