Part of the Springer proceedings in physics book series (SPPHY, volume 116)

Measurements aimed at optical characteristics of the basic building material of the Renaissance dome of King Sigismund’s Chapel in Wawel Castle are described in the paper. Colorimetric measurements, LIBS investigations and Raman effect measurements were carried out. LIBS spectra of encrusted and clean (fresh fractured) grey-greenish Myslenicki sandstone are presented. Raman spectra and reflection coefficients as well as L, a, b coordinates for several samples are also shown.
