Using Nuclear Techniques to Analyze Art

May 9, 2013

Philippe Collon, Associate Professor of Physics, University of Notre Dame.

Art forgery is big business with museum reputations and millions of dollars at stake. Physicist Philippe Collon discusses recent advances in nuclear science that enable his team of scientists to analyze pottery glazes, determine the origins of clay, detect the age of inks, and to penetrate multiple layers of paint without damaging the artwork or artifact.
