The study of thick corrosion layers on archaeological metals using controlled laser ablation in conjuction with an external beam microprobe

Abstract:

The variation with depth of the composition of corrosion layers on buried metal objects can provide the archaeologist with valuable information relating to the burial conditions of the object. In some cases these layers can be varied in thickness (up to 1 mm) and so normally destructive methods such as sampling are used to characterise the metal and corrosion layers when possible. This paper describes the use of a microfocused high power pulsed Nd:YAG laser to ablate the corrosion layer in a ...
