3-4.30pm. With Phil Manning, The University of Manchester. This talk will explore the application of synchrotron-based imaging that yields high resolution (2-100 micron) and highly sensitive (parts per million) chemical maps of large (up to 1 metre square) archaeological artefacts, works of art and fossil remains. The 'chemical ghosts' that can be non-destructively imaged in the x-ray part of the electromagnetic spectrum are revealing exciting new information on some very old material.
