The meeting will consist of two events:
• New techniques for the non-invasive investigation of the surface and subsurface structure of heritage objects 25-26 June 2013
This two-day workshop, organised under the CHARISMA
EU-funded project, will focus on advances in the non-invasive investigation of the surface and sub-surface structure of cultural heritage objects. A number of techniques of this kind are being developed within CHARISMA, including optical coherence tomography, terahertz spectroscopy and imaging, combined time-resolved and steady-state fluorimetry, single-sided NMR tomography and IR scanning confocal microscopy. This event will bring together expertise in these and other relevant techniques, through a series of invited presentations describing the characteristics and capabilities of each type of instrumentation, with the emphasis on practical applications in the cultural heritage field. There is also an open call for poster submissions for the event.
There will be no fee for the event. Location: Department of Mathematics
• Training on application of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) to structural analysis 27-28 June 2013

This two-day training event will be dedicated to traditional and innovative applications of OCT to the examination of cultural heritage objects.
During the first day the physical background and a review of the state-of-the-art of OCT will be presented and the most advanced applications to cultural heritage will also be reviewed. A second day will be mostly devoted to practical training with utilisation of the OCT instrument built for the CHARISMA project.
There will be no fee for the event. Location: Institute of Physics
