Coating systems in historical bowed string instruments are often multi-layered structures combining several inorganic and organic materials. The experiments performed at the SYRMEP beamline aimed at testing the still unexplored application of micro-CT (micro Computed Tomography) for the investigation of these systems. The experimental settings were optimized for the detection of the main features expected.

Abstract

Coating systems in historical bowed string instruments are often multi-layered structures combining several inorganic and organic materials. The experiments performed at the SYRMEP beamline aimed at testing the still unexplored application of micro-CT (micro Computed Tomography) for the investigation of these systems. The experimental settings were optimized for the detection of the main features expected. Two sets of mock-ups and a fragment removed from a cello by Andrea Guarneri were then scanned obtaining impressive images of the most relevant features of the layered structures.
