Non-invasive Diagnostic Analysis on 16th Century Raphael Artwork

Professor of Physics Francesco Arneodo, in collaboration with CHNet, used his expertise in X-ray fluorescence to deepen the knowledge of the techniques, tools, and inks used by Raphael between 1504-1508. Little was previously known about the drawing which hasn't been fully investigated until now.

NYUAD Researchers Discover Orbital Patterns of Trans-Neptunian Objects

A study led by Mohamad Ali-Dib, a research scientist at NYUAD's Center for Astro, Particle, and Planetary Physics, reports the significant discovery that two groups of TNOs with different surface colors also have very different orbital patterns. This new information can be compared to models of the solar system to provide fresh insights into its early chemistry.
