A monochromatic millimeter wave imaging system coupled with an infrared temperature sensor has been used to investigate historic objects preserved at the museum of Aquitaine. Especially, 2D and 3D analysis have been performed in order to reveal the internal structure of a nearly 3500 years old sealed Egyptian jar. © 2011 IEEE. Source

An Eighteenth Dynasty Egyptian sealed pottery stored at the Museum of Aquitaine (Bordeaux, France) has been investigated using terahertz radiation, X-rays and neutrons. THz computed tomography revealed nondestructively the presence of content, whereas X-rays and neutrons analyzed more precisely the fabrication process and conservation of the pottery together with the nature of this content owing to higher spatial resolution and contrast. With neutron tomography, we determined the method used to seal the jar as well as the finer structure of the inner content. Neutron-induced prompt gamma spectroscopy was finally applied to measure the elemental composition of the content, which is supposed to consist of dried germinated seeds. © 2014, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Terahertz imaging and conventional X-ray have been used to investigate a sealed Ancient Egyptian jar preserved at the Museum of Aquitaine (France). Terahertz radiation revealed an unknown content that could not have been visualized by X-ray. By comparison with a model object, we concluded that this content was composed of organic materials explaining their relative radiolucency. © 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Source
