This undated handout picture released on August 4, 2016 by the Nature publishing Group shows an Edgar Degas painting "Portrait of a Woman" as it appears during the imaging scan. The MAIA Detector is carefully positioned less than 2 mm from the paintings surface in order to achieve the highest quality data. The detector collects data simultaneously over 384 channels, which means that much higher resolutions are achieved in much shorter time spans when compared to single point detectors. An experiment that would take weeks of beam time by conventional methods is reduced to only 20 to 30 hours.

En utilisant des techniques poussées d'imagerie, des scientifiques ont réussi à faire réapparaître virtuellement un portrait de femme peint par Edgar Degas, caché sous un autre portrait signé de sa main.
