The presence of the polysaccharides layer that wraps linen fibers of the Turin Shroud yarns is presented in , p. 4, points A3, A4, A7, and A10. This layer was discovered by R. Rogers and communicated to the Shroud Science Group, a 100-expert private group study (G. Fanti, chairman) that discusses the scientific aspects of the Turin Shroud. The presence of this layer was successively confirmed by G. Fanti.
“La Sindone è provocazione all'intelligenza,” (The Turin Shroud is a challenge to the intelligence), said Pope John Paul II visiting Turin on 24 May, 1998, adding that “The Church entrusts scientists the task to go on with research.”
The corona effect is a process by which a current develops from an electrode with a high potential in a neutral fluid, usually air, by ionizing that fluid so as to create a plasma around the electrode. The ions generated eventually pass charge to nearby areas of lower potential or recombine to form neutral gas molecules. Suitable geometry and gradient values allow plasma emission of ultraviolet light during recombination. See, e.g., G. Fanti, F. Lattarulo, and O. Scheuermann, “Body image formation hypotheses based on corona discharge,” presented at The Third Dallas International Conference on the Shroud of Turin, Dallas, Texas, 8-11 September 2005; http://www.dim.unipd.it/fanti/corona.pdf
