Abstract

Laser calorimetric or thermal rise techniques are useful for the determination of very low absorption coefficients in solids. A number of improvements in this technique are described of which the most important is a means of separating surface and bulk absorption. These techniques have been applied to study alkali halides in the ir but are applicable where laser sources of sufficient power are available.
