Methods

Microscopic techniques

  • Incident light microscopy (light field, dark field, differential interference contrast, UV fluorescence),
    magnification 100 – 1000 times
  • Transmitted light microscopy (light field, dark field, polarisation),
    magnification 100 – ca. 600 times
  • 3D microscopy (HIROX),
    magnification 0 – 800 times
  • Electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray detection – SEM/EDX (using an instrument at the Institute for Art and Technology, University of Applied Arts Vienna,
    Head of the institute o.Univ.-Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. techn. Alfred Vendl)

Spectrometric techniques

  • Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry – GC/MS
  • Pyrolysis-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry – Py-GC/MS
  • Portable µ-X-ray fluorescence spectrometer – µ-XRF (in preparation)

Preventive Conservation

  • Material tests: Oddy-test, microchemical tests
  • Controlling tightness of showcases: CO2-Logger
  • Measurement of volatile organic compounds (VOCs): handheld instrument ppbRAE3000
  • Monitoring of pollutants using MUSECORR sensors
