New Technologies Will Enable The Met's Scientists to Advance Scholarship in Cultural Heritage Science

Through this partnership, both Companies plan to focus on advanced mass spectrometry instrumentation, x-ray diffraction, and Raman imaging, adding state-of-the-art technology to the impressive array of scientific tools already in place at The Met. The new technologies will enable The Met's scientists to advance scholarship in cultural heritage science and solve the most challenging conservation problems.

Bruker will also offer instrumentation and technical expertise for the Network Initiative for Conservation Science (NICS), the new program established by The Met to support research at other museums in New York City. Bruker's portable infrared, Raman, and x-ray fluorescence instrumentation operated by The Met's scientists will play an essential role in establishing a mobile laboratory, and in building a distributed scientific network benefitting all cultural heritage institutions in the city of New York, and also to support the museums that lack scientific resources to perform in-depth chemical and elemental analysis.

Bruker and The Met Partnership Yielded New Instrumentation Development

The Companies have been working together for a long time, and their association has yielded new instrumentation development and methods that are now commonly used around the world. In August 2009, The Met carried out FT-Raman spectroscopy using a Bruker Ram II FT-Raman-Vertex 70 FTIR Micro spectrometer. The 1064 nm line of an Nd:YAG laser used as the excitation line. Additional SERS work on Ag colloids was carried out using a Bruker Senterra Raman microscope.

In October 2013, a series of paintings of The Met were analyzed by means of the Bruker M6 MA-XRF instrument. The Bruker M6 JETSTREAM is designed for the non-destructive elemental analysis of large samples. The mobility of the instrument allows it to be placed at the site of the object of interest. The performance parameters enable scanning areas of 800 mm x 600 mm, with a variable spot size down to 100 µm and speeds of up to 100 mm/s.
