Behind the scenes at the DIA: What is an X-ray fluorescence spectrometer and how do scientists at the Detroit Institute of Arts use it to learn about art from the past? We meet with Cathy, a research scientist at the D.I.A., to study a sculpture of St. Francis that's over 400 years old. Plus, what does it take to become a part of the D.I.A.'s research team?
