Abstract: Globular clusters have been long predicted to host intermediate-mass black holes (IMBHs) in their centres. The growing evidence that some/all Galactic globular clusters (GCs) could harbour middle range (102 – 104Mxs2299) black holes, just as galaxies do, stimulates the searches and the development of new methods for proving their existence. Here we propose another method of detection – the microlensing of the cluster stars by the central BH.
