Archaeology and Archaeometry
The analysis of priceless ancient artifacts with surface science techniques like XPS and NAP-XPS allows to deliver results about the surface composition of metallic and non-metallic specimens without damaging or destroying them. EnviroESCA offers the possibility to load large and uneven samples and to perform the analysis in environmental conditions which will preserve the delicate relics.
EnviroESCA applications in scientific archaeology
In the present application note EnviroESCA is used for chemical Analysis in the field of Archaeometry. Besides the ability of Near Ambient Pressure X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (NAP-XPS) to analyze the surface composition of metallic and nonmetallic specimens, EnviroESCA allows for a nondestructive analysis of artifacts without special pretreatment procedures.
