Nonlinear imaging and THz diagnostic tools in the service of Cultural Heritage Academic Article uri icon


  • We present the use of novel nonlinear imaging, terahertz time-domain spectroscopy and imaging as powerful diagnostic tools for studies of works of art. It is shown that nonlinear imaging offers precise in-depth information, while terahertz imaging can reveal hidden objects and uncover information on highly absorbing organic compounds whose visualization is difficult in other parts of the spectrum. © Springer-Verlag 2011.
