General Keynote Address

Dr Claire Pacheco

Centre de Recherche e Restauration des Musées de France








In 2007 at Bordeaux 3 University, Claire Pacheco defended a PhD in Archaeomaterials entitled Study of gold thin films on vitreous matrix – application to medieval glazed ceramics – Iran, 12th-13th c.; Central Asia, 14th-15th c. During post-docs, she studied the modern manufacturing techniques of gold leaf and did technical and scientific support for European users at the AGLAE facility.
Since 2011, she is in charge of the AGLAE beamline and in the framework of the CHARISMA European program, from 2012 to 2015, she was the leader of the FIXLAB platform, which gave transnational access to four large scale facilities (SOLEIL synchrotron, Budapest Neutron Center, ATOMKI-HAS ion beam facility in Debrecen, Hungary and the AGLAE facility).
Since 2014, she manages the AGLAE+ group at the Research Department of C2RMF (Centre de Recherche et de Restauration des Musées de France), group which gathers several analytical intruments such as the AGLAE beamline, XRF, µ-XRD, SEM and a laser platform (LIBS, LIF, Raman spectroscopy).
Her current challenge is to coordinate the implementation of the New AGLAE beamline, which should be able to welcome its first users in July 2017. This project, funded by the French Research National Agency (ANR-10-EQPX-22), the French ministry of Culture and Paris city council, aims at automating the beamline and conceiving and developing a new imaging multi-detector. It will end in 2019.
