Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia grants substantial funding for MLab project in cooperation with Elettra

The ICTP Multidisciplinary Laboratory has received a €600,000 grant from the local government of Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia for its project “Development of an X-Ray Portable System for Non-Destructive Analysis of Archeological and Artistic Materials”. The Laboratory, led by Professor Claudio Tuniz, will join efforts with the ELETTRA Synchrotron Light Laboratory, based in Trieste, to develop cutting-edge methodologies and instrumentation. In particular, a compact and portable X-ray device will be developed for conducting in-situ non-destructive characterization of a wide range of materials and small objects. Such methodology can also find useful applications in other fields such as environmental monitoring, biology, paleontology and materials science. The project will span over three years.
