AXES (Antwerp X-ray Analysis, Electrochemistry and Speciation)


  • My research is focussed on developing and applying X-ray powder diffraction as a mobile chemical imaging tool. I mainly apply this technique for the non-invasive analysis of paintings, art objects and their degradation products. Next to this mobile instrument, I employ synchrotron-based radiation for the investigation of complex art/paint stratigraphies at the submicron scale.
