Using X-rays to analyze cultural heritage

This workshop "X-rays to Analyze Cultural Heritage" hosted by the ACerS AACS (Art, Archaeology, and Conservation Science Division of The American Ceramic Society) will bring students and other interested researchers from a variety of disciplines (engineering, art history, and archaeology) in contact with the leading scientists working in the field of synchrotron analysis of cultural heritage. It will take place on October 1st and 2nd 2013 at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and the Cantor Art Museum at Stanford University.

The participants will learn about the latest research on the use of synchrotrons to analyze cultural heritage, obtain hands on experience with the examination and treatment of synchrotron derived data as taught by Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) staff scientists, and have a tour of the SSRL facility with a particular emphasis on the imaging microscopes at beamlines 2-3, 10-2, and 14-3.
