On the Potential of THz Time-Domain Spectroscopy to Identify Typical Ancient Egyptian Embalming Materials


Stübling, E; Öhrström, L; Eppenberger, P; Habicht, M; Rühli, F; Koch, M (2019). On the Potential of THz Time-Domain Spectroscopy to Identify Typical Ancient Egyptian Embalming Materials. Journal of Infrared, Millimeter, and Terahertz Waves, 40(7):763-769.

Abstract

We investigated the dielectric properties of typical embalming materials used in ancient Egypt in the THz frequency range. In addition, we evaluated the potential to identify these materials based on a principal component analysis of the spectroscopic data. Based on this, we estimated the composition of two unknown ancient bandages of mummified bodies.
