Author Affiliations +
An application of real-time holography to detect microcracks in ancient golden paintings is presented. The technique does not require sophisticated laboratory equipment and enables us not only to pinpoint the presence of a crack in embryo, inaccessible by more conventional methods of inspection, but also to monitor its growth in real time, giving, therefore, a valid aid to artworkers for determining the best conditions for the preservation of paintings.
