Molecular Chemical bonds were identifed using FTIR which output was an infrared absorption spectrum, that becomes like a sample profile, uniquely identifying it at molecular level giving information about its composition.
In Raman Spectroscopy the light scattered off of a sample is utilized as opposed to the light absorbed by a sample.

Another test was practised measuring many micro-mechanical characteristics of flax fibers, like tensile strength.
Now the data obtained was matched with similar tests on pieces of cloth from between 3250 BC and 2000 AD whose dates are accurately known.
A New York Times editorial (3/2/84) described them as "a lost tribe that has kept its identity for more than 2,000 years in a remote corner of Africa." Abraham, ancestor of the Hebrews, was from Chaldea; the ancient Chaldeans were Black.
The files were recovered and shared with Barry Schwortz to include as part of the STERA, Inc archive. Some microfibers looked like yellow and white candy canes, the white areas resulting from one thread crossing over another and protecting the underlying area from the image making process. The carbon dating, once seemingly proving it was a medieval fake, is now widely thought of as suspect and meaningless.It was probably a mixture of older threads and newer threads woven into the cloth as part of a medieval repair.Recent robust statistical studies add weight to this theory.The produced results are dating this object in the very times of Jesus Christ. The tests used were FTIR, Raman and multiparametric mechanical.Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and Raman spectroscopy chemical tests are based on the relationship that exist in between age and a spectral property of ancient flax textiles.
