metal spectro electrochemistry conservation synchrotron radiation time-resolved in situ testing
Project description

The project aims at contributing to the state of the art of metal conservation. Especially the effects of short and long term environmental exposure on clean and corroded metal surfaces will be documented using time-resolved synchrotron techniques. Secondly the project aims at developing simple an reliable corrosion monitoring techniques for use in museums. Improved methods for the production of metal simulats are envisioned.
