    I need some ideas for a poster that I'm making. Anything interesting about instrumental analysis at all? I don't really want this to be too complex or boring (eg the analysis of lignin or the analysis of metallic ores using XRF). Something most people can relate to is a bonus.

    I did have some initial ideas eg the use of XRF to determine composition of paintings and historical artifacts (particularly interested with Van Gogh's hidden painting). And also the determination of composition of iceman's clothing using some instrument (I forgot).

    Thanks

    well you might try something in Art Restoration of Forensics (eg. forensic
    spectroscopy). the title of your asking did include the word Spectros ...

    For example, I have this friend Tom Kaye who is a forensic archaeologist
    and specialises in spectroscopy. He even has a poster on his website that
    might give you ideas. Just do a Googel search for Tom Kaye/spectroscopy
    or Tom Kaye/FBI ... you will find him.

    I will bookmark your post and come back several times to see if you're still
    here, if not will assume you went another direction. Good luck.
