Novel Applications of Microscopy and Microanalysis

Honolulu, Hawaii – April 3-7, 2012

This session focuses on the application of microscopy techniques in the scientific study of archaeological materials. Included are a variety of novel applications covering multiple research areas in lithic analysis, faunal analysis, and metallurgy. Focus is on the application of techniques that generate new types of data which open up new areas of quantitative analysis. Contributions include 3D microscope techniques, metrology, Raman microscopy, confocal imaging (reflected or transmitted), atomic force microscopy, SEM, and novel applications of traditional microscopy techniques.
