Optical techniques applied to measurements in art
thesisposted on 04.02.2020 by Paolo M. Zanetta
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Optical diagnostic techniques are particularly attractive for the non-destructive detection of incipient damage and the evaluation of the state of surface decay. Non-contact, high precision measurements of the shape and deformation of an artifact can be performed using laser methods based on holographic and speckle interferometry. [Continues.]
