We present a survey on five years of experiments of excimer laser irradiation of linen fabrics, seeking a coloration mechanism able to reproduce the microscopic complexity of the body image embedded onto the Shroud of Turin. We achieved a superficial, Shroud-like coloration in a narrow range of irradiation parameters. We also obtained latent coloration that(More)
The faint body image embedded into the Turin Shroud has not yet explained by science. We present experimental results of excimer laser irradiation (wavelengths 308 nm and 193 nm) of a raw linen fabric and of a linen cloth, seeking for a possible mechanism of image formation. We achieved a permanent coloration of both linens as a threshold effect of the(More)
A proposal is presented for exploiting the peculiarities of soft X-ray radiation produced by SPARX in the field of biological investigation by using single-shot contact microscopy and holography [1, 2] on an innovative imaging detector. Extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation and soft X-rays (XUV) are currently used by physicists and biologists to obtain images(More)
