Orion investigates the structure and chemical composition of materials found in more than
4000 years of cultural property, forensic evidence, and manufactured
goods - from ancient Egyptian artifacts to printed circuit boards - using microscopy, spectroscopy, and scientific imaging.
We provide consultation on materials at issue in authenticity studies
and insurance claims, and serve as consulting or testifying expert in
civil and criminal proceedings.
Our work is reported in Antiques, Art News, CBS News/60 Minutes, Chemical and Engineering News, Discover Magazine, Forbes, Inside Laboratory Management, Maine Antique Digest, The Art Newspaper, The New York Times and Wine Spectator.
