CTinHS Lecture #05 | February 22, 2024

On February 22nd, 2024 will be held the 5th lecture of the Current Topics in Heritage Science series.

At 3 pm, on the Zoom platform, we met Pr Bernhard Blümich, who will talk about his work on Portable NMR for structural diagnostic in heritage science.

In this lecture, you will learn about nondestructive analysis techniques. Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), which is used in spectroscopy for chemical analysis and in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for medical diagnostics, is one such technique. Three case studies will demonstrate the application of portable NMR in the analysis of cultural heritage objects, as well as how the instrument functions and how to utilize it:

  1. A comparative study of the Roman frescoes’ mortar-layer stratigraphy;
  2. The condition of master violin preservation;
  3. The impact of solvent on easel paintings’ varnish removal.

The lecture is broken down into 30 minutes presentation & 15 minutes Q&A, to allow you to interact with the speaker.

Please, remember to register at the IPERION HS FORM.

CTinHS – Current Topics in the Heritage Science series are organized by emerging professionals in HS Academy, a collaborative initiative between IPERION HS and E-RIHS
