In an interferometry process the successful recording of interference fringes is the primary purpose. A successful interference fringe pattern is formed under strict boundary experimental conditions to provide a high contrast light distribution record. The physical significance of interference fringe patterns is highly evaluated for its high spatial information content and therefore it is explored in many fields of applied science and engineering. Among the most recently explored application domains is the field of Cultural Heritage. The fringe pattern significance is examined as to provide an accurate qualitative and quantitative measuring method to investigate, interpret, document and diagnose existing structural condition and influencing effects on the structure's integrity especially in concern of artworks. These are irreplaceable treasures of human creativity and as such are treated under ethical perspectives of humanities regardless the commercial value they represent; as such in order to evaluate the structural condition maximum image recording resolution and spatial reactions' sensitivity are key factors for diagnostic analysis and documentation. In interference application for art conservation the fringe pattern formation provides a unique information source and measurement capabilities far beyond current practices. In this context a laser based interferometry system is considered most suited to documenting the structural condition of movable/immovable artworks and in the presented application the provided properties are explored to understand and evaluate on the structural documentation of artworks.
