Our group has a long-term experience in the collaboration with large scale facilities and laboratories, both as users of different
beamlines and instrumentation developers. The facilities we used until now are both ions and neutrons sources.
LNL: Legnaro National Laboratories of INFN (Padova, Italy).
We use the microbeam line of the
AN2000 particles accelerator, carrying out both micro-PIXE and micro-IBIL measurements in vacuum both on lapis lazuli and on ancient coins.
The micro-IBIL setup on the microbeam line have been developed by our group in the last years.
BNC - Budapest Neutron Center (Budapest, Hungary).
We carried out PGAA, TOF and XRF measurements on Celtic coins from the Hungarian National Museum in Budapest, with an experiment approved and funded in the CHARISMA project
Cultural Heritage Advanced Research Infrastructures, Synergy for a Multidisciplinary Approach to conservation/restoration) of the European Union (FP7).
