Centre for Image and Material Analysis in Cultural Heritage, CIMA
Subject area: Material Chemistry
What it is: The station will show our approaches to photograph (and thus virtually preserve in the best possible manner) badly preserved manuscripts and palimpsests with the aid of Multi-Spectral Imaging and to obtain a comprehensive view of the materials of which the manuscripts are manufactured, written and decorated by means of XRF, UV-vis, FTIR or Raman spectroscopy. Posters will also give an overview on other methods used by the CIMA teams (philology, DNA, restoration-conservation).
