The NHM Vienna offers excellent opportunities to work with natural historical material. The extensive and diversified collections, the wide-ranging expertise of the NHM employees and the modern microanalysis devices allow to generate complex data of a broad variety of objects and samples - from biological specimens to Martian meteorites.
Many of the samples are unique and, therefore, require an analysis technique that is as non-destructive as possible. As such, the Central Research Laboratories offer a very flexible range of advanced imaging and analysis techniques across different scale ranges.
A few selected publications from the last few years, which were produced in-house and in cooperation with external scientists, provide a small insight into the variety of applications.
