Cathodoluminescence applied to the microcharacterization of mineral materials : a present status in experimentation and interpretation
Experimentation and interpretation of cathodoluminescence (CL) microscopy and spectroscopy applied to the microcharacterization of material minerals are reviewed. The origins of the intrinsic (host
Since little is known about the cuerda seca technique, our aim has been to complete an initial analysis of 11th-century cuerda seca by studying fragments from the 10th century (Pechina, Almeria) and
Gold leaf decoration on medieval islamic glazed ceramics - in search of technological features with XRD
Considered as luxury earthenware, haft-rangi ceramics are sometimes enlightened with gold leaves. This type of decoration appears on vessels in the Iranian world in the 12th-13th centuries and is
The Potential of EBSD and EDS for Ceramics Investigations—Case Studies on Sherds of Pre‐Columbian Pottery
The work focuses on the potential of structural and chemical examinations by scanning electron microscopy based methods for archaeometric studies on ceramics. Achieved by a single preparation
Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy for elemental characterization of calcitic alterations on cave walls
The use of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) is used to characterize the elemental composition of one coralloid sample with a portable instrument allowing punctual measurements and a laboratory mapping setup delivering elemental images with spatial resolution at the micrometric scale, being particularly attentive to Mg, Sr, and Si identified as elements of interest.
Probing some organic ukiyo-e Japanese pigments and mixtures using non-invasive and mobile infrared spectroscopies
This work focuses on results obtained by combining fibre optic reflectance spectroscopy in the near-infrared range (FORS NIR) with mid-inf infrared (MIR) spectroscopes, which turned out to be relevant to extract information on the organic pigments of interest, even within complex mixtures.
Laser cleaning of historical limestone buildings in Bordeaux appraisal using cathodoluminescence and electron paramagnetic resonance
CL and EPR data confirm that lasers — with highly controlled parameters — only get rid of the black crust and, thus, reveal the underneath layer, the so-called patina, which indicates CL to be a fast and easy way to provide a high quality control for the restoration of polluted ancient stones.
Advanced statistical analysis of LIBS spectra for the sourcing of obsidian samples
This paper proposes an advanced statistical analysis method for results obtained by Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy on obsidian source samples from the Western Mediterranean area.
