Abstract

Holographic and thermographic techniques have been recently applied in artwork diagnostics for the quantitative evaluation of defect size and depth in laboratory samples of artworks. The aim of this study is a comparison between holographic interferometry (both double exposure and real time), and pulsed thermography (PT) processing techniques such as differential absolute contrast (DAC) and pulsed phase thermography (PPT) for the detection of the subsurface flaws on wooden panel paintings. The performance of holographic techniques can be reserved for investigation of particular defects (cracks, detachments) at incipient stages, where high resolution/sensitivity is required, while PT can provide interesting quantitative results in situ.
