02-Dec-11: Italian study claims Turin Shroud is Christ's authentic burial robe

[Above (enlarge): ENEA's Hercules-L XeCl excimer laser[2]. The above is from my post of 02-Dec-11. My other posts on ENEA's excimer laser replicating the Shroud image's color and extremely superficial characteristics are: 06Jan12, 15Jun12, 23Jun15, 11Aug15, 19May16, 05Sept16, 05Feb17 & 08May18.]. The ENEA report found that the depth of the image on the cloth is only "one fifth of a thousandth of a millimeter" (0.0002 mm) which is the thickness of the primary cell wall of a linen fiber:

"Furthermore, the color of the image resides on the outer surface of the fibrils that make up the threads of the cloth, and recent measurements of fragments of the Shroud show that the thickness of staining is extremely thin, around 200 nm = 200 billionths of a meter, or one fifth of a thousandth of a millimeter, which corresponds to the thickness of the primary cell wall of the so-called single linen fiber"[3].
While the ENEA scientists did not use the word "supernatural," that is the only explanation of how a dead body generated the equivalent of "34 thousand billion watts" of light-energy to "reproduce the entire Shroud image":"
"However, ENEA scientists warn, `it should be noted that the total power of VUV [vacuum ultraviolet] radiations required to instantly color the surface of linen that corresponds to a human of average height, body surface area equal to = 2000 MW/cm2 17000 cm2 = 34 thousand billion watts makes it impractical today to reproduce the entire Shroud image using a single laser excimer, since this power cannot be produced by any VUV light source built to date (the most powerful available on the market come to several billion watts"[4]
