ZAG hosts people that look inside the matter


The Workshop on Advanced X-ray characterization technologies in Earth Sciences is being held at Slovenian National Building and Civil Engineering Institute (ZAG) from Tuesday to Thursday (February 27 – 29, 2024). The workshop is attended by over 60 people, experts and early-stage researchers in the field of X-ray technologies with focus on tomographic imaging.

The workshop offers the opportunity to the participants for visiting the laboratories and facilities at ZAG, the reach collection of National Museum of Slovenia, and to participate in a petrographic itinerary to Ljubljana guided by Department of Geology. These creates many opportunities to exchange ideas and making a steppingstone to the further cooperations in the field.

The workshop is organized by the partners of the University in Catania, Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste (Italy) and ZAG in cooperation with the University of Ljubljana, Faculty for Natural Sciences and Engineering, Department of Geology and supported by Slovenian Research and Innovation Agency and Italian Society of Mineralogy and Petrology – SIMP.

The workshop, dedicated to MSc and PhD students, post-doctoral and senior researchers, aims to illustrate advanced three-dimensional and four-dimensional analysis protocols applied to studies in Earth and heritage sciences. The workshop consists of theory (lectures) and practical sessions and covers the following topics:

  • 3D/4D X-ray imaging techniques: principles, applications and tutorials
  • Artificial and natural building materials: environmental and health impact
  • Natural and cultural heritage applications
  • Multidisciplinary applications in geosciences
