Institut photonique d'analyse non-destructive européen des matériaux anciens

Laboratory presentation

The European photon-based institute of research on ancient materials (IPANEMA) is a centre for the development of advanced methodologies of material characterization in archaeology, paleo-environments, paleontology and cultural heritage, and the support of synchrotron-based research through external users hosted on the platform. To this aim, IPANEMA develops and provides advanced techniques for preparing specimens, to study artifacts and samples, and statistically analyze collected imaging datasets. The institute occupies a leading position owing to its original non-destructive approaches for collecting morphological, structural and chemical information on ancient materials.
