PhD position

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a cutting-edge imaging technique that produces 3D images of surface and subsurface microstructure of transparent and semi-transparent materials. It is a powerful tool for the study of museum objects as it can produce images of cross-sections without contact with the object. Information on the composition of vitreous materials will also be collected using spectroscopic techniques and combined with the OCT results, thus giving an overall view of the objects in 3D.
