Abstract
Solid ink sticks are one of the greatest inventions in ancient history because they allow knowledge to propagate to further generations; more benefits include easy transportation, long-term storage, and mass production. The solid ink-sticks are made from soot, animal glues, and, if necessary, small amounts of fragrance. The ink-sticks are identified as pine tree soot, vegetable soot, or mineral types. To scientifically understand the traditional ink stick, it is important to distinguish the different kinds of soot used. The present work introduces Ultra small angle neutron scattering (USANS) and Small angle neutron scattering (SANS) techniques to characterize the size and the spatial distribution of soot in the solid ink sticks. We will discuss the preliminary results and the neutron scattering techniques. The proposed methodology can also be extended to characterize the soot trace of letters written in calligraphy and ancient documents. This enables us to track the history of traditional ink sticks in a chronicle manner.
