Applicant’s Name: Nicola Sodini Date: 09/06/2007
Report on the applicant (including the need for the use of neutron and/or synchrotron radiation) I was in charge of supervisor of Nicola Sodini, who carried out his PhD in Wood Science at DISTAF (a Department of the University of Florence). His thesis work has been on the investigation of the influence of Hemicelluloses on time dependent behavior of wood. As an important part of his research work was on the characterisation of the physical behaviour of the material, he has been particularly involved in the collaboration with SYRMEP group (at ELETTRA Synchrotron Light Laboratory in Trieste) in order to develop and improve the use of micro tomography for density characterization of wood. The studies were carried out both on recent and on archaeological wood, and some papers have been already published and others are under publications. During all the phases of the projects he has demonstrated a high level of interest and good skills for achieving the proposed results, as well as he has a good feeling for team work. I consider this training course as an excellent chance to improve his personal, and more in general the department, knowledge about the potentiality of synchrotron and neutron radiation like a powerful toll that can be used on the study and the characterization of the cultural heritage.
