Synchrotron-Radiation MicroCT Of Bowed Stringed Intrumens

Feasibility studies have been carried out at the SYRMEP beamline of the Elettra synchrotron laboratory in Trieste with the aim of demonstrating the advantages and evaluating  the  effectiveness  of  synchrotron  radiation  X-ray microtomography   as   a   suitable   technique   for   non-destructive analysis of bowed stringed instruments.

Feasibility studies have been carried out at the SYRMEP beamline of the Elettra synchrotron laboratory in Trieste with the aim of demonstrating the advantages and evaluating  the  effectiveness  of  synchrotron  radiation  X-ray microtomography   as   a   suitable   technique   for   non-destructive analysis of bowed stringed instruments. The particular  geometry  of  the  X-ray  beam  and  the  use  of  a novel  detector  allow  structural  evaluation  of  the  main details  of  the  instruments  with  unprecedented  richness of details. This, in turn, will allow precise dendrochrono-logical  investigation  of  historical  violins,  as  well  as  the characterization  of  their  structure,  defects,  wood  thickness and density.
