Vortrag von Priv.-Doz. DI Dr. Wolfgang Schöfberger (Institut für Organische Chemie, Johannes Kepler Universität Linz) am Institut für NAturwissenschaften und Technologie in der Kunst.

The use of a portable NMR device allows a non-invasive investigation of inorganic and organic materials. [1] The NMR investigation has been found mainly on relaxation measurements whose results seem compatible with different relaxation rates in different morphological domains. The use of a portable NMR device shows great potentiality because of its safe and simple in situ approach to Cultural Heritage documents.

During the talk, the underlying theory of this technique will be discussed and subsequently a broad range of applications will be presented.
