Today in the lab – new IR spectrometer and other work

Today we had a great day in the lab.

The new FTIR Spectrometer (purchased courtesy of the Canadian SSHRC grant) was set up by Amir the technician, and as of now, Adi Behar, project archaeological science coordinator, will be able to start analyzing samples in the lab! This is a real improvement of our analytic capabilities in the BIU lab – and this is quite a nice event!

Here Amir the technician is setting up the IR on its dedicated computer with Adi (on the right side of the picture) looking on (the IR is the little white and black instrument sitting on the table next to Amir’s right shoulder).

In addition, the Safi team was busy working away in the lab:

And here is a picture of Dina, our pottery restorer, working on putting together a very complicated puzzle!

Great team!
