Bruker and The Metropolitan Museum of Art Announce Partnership in the Field of Cultural Heritage Science

Release time:2018-08-30Visit:544

New York, NY and Billerica, Mass. – December 13, 2017 – The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) and Bruker Corporation are pleased to announce a 10-year partnership to advance novel analytical technologies and methods in the field of cultural heritage science even further. This partnership builds upon and expands a long history of collaboration that has yielded considerable progress and results: among them, the introduction of the first Open Architecture Raman Microscope, the application of Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) to the identification of organic colorants, the development of Laser Ablation SERS, and just recently, the use of Macro Area Scanning XRF for the study of paintings. Our previous collaborations have yielded new instrumentation development and methods that are now commonly used around the world. With this new ambitious partnership, we will focus on advanced mass spectrometry instrumentation, as well as 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.

As part of this collaboration, Bruker will also provide 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. As many of these museums lack the scientific resources to perform in-depth chemical and elemental analysis, Bruker portable infrared, Raman, and x-ray fluorescence instrumentation operated by Met 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.
