A mobile instrument has been developed for the detection and mapping of detachments in frescos by using Compton back scattered photons.
The instrument is mainly composed of a high energy X-ray tube, an X-ray detection system and a translation table.
The instrument was first applied to samples simulating various detachment situations, and then transferred to the Vatican Museum to detect detachments and inhomogeneities in the stanza di Eliodoro, one of the “Raphael’s stanze”.
