The new Laboratory for Heritage Science at MTA Atomki – preparing for the participation in E-RIHS

The Laboratory for Heritage Science has been founded to promote research in the field of cultural and natural heritage, in collaboration with national and international partners.

The Ion beam Applications group of the Laboratory of Ion Beam Physics applies atomic and nuclear physics for multidisciplinary research, such as the investigation of the composition of art and archaeological objects. The main activity of the C-14 group in the Isotope Climatology and Environmental Research Centre is radiocarbon dating. The HSLab project is a common endeavour of the Ion Beam Application group and the C-14 group to extend our competencies by introducing new techniques and procuring new devices.
