Focused Group Material Science and Analysis VII (FGMSA VII) – Session 2

Nov 07, 2022 from 03:00 PM to 04:00 PM

Kiel University/Technical Faculty/Kaiserstraße 2/ Room A-239/24143 Kiel

Material Science and Analysis workshop 

Analytical analyses play an important role in the study of archaeological artefacts. Frequently, these artefacts, particularly their microstructure and composition, raise questions of inter- and transdisciplinary relevance, which cannot be answered by conventional routine analyses. This workshop aims to show the non-destructive sample preparation method and analytical techniques from the material science, e.g., electron microscopy as well as spectroscopic techniques. These techniques can be used to help clarify some of the questions about the production, origin and use of the archaeological findings. 


The workshop consists of 2 sessions.

Session 1/ 14:00-14:50:
Presentations related to the theoretical background of the material analysis techniques, including Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), X-Ray Diffraction Method (XRD) and Raman Spectroscopy. After presentations there will be time for questions and discussion.

Session 2/15:00-16:00:
Visit to all the material analysis facilities and laboratories of the technical faculty, including short overview of the measurements.
