abstract
By means of non-destructive computerized X-ray micro tomography (mCT) completed with image analysis, the project ims to monitor quantitatively the effects of physical weathering processes of model glass and of old (medieval) glass objects. For this aim, a new type of desktop micro-tomograph will be developed and build. Additional quantification with various 2D- and 3D-reconstructions will assure data reliability.
