Abstract

Photoacoustic detection of optical absorption in bulk solids is investigated with sample–transducer configuration using 5-nsec tunable dye laser pulses. The technique is shown to be sensitive for the measurements of nonlinear as well as linear absorption. The analysis of the resonant character of the piezoelectric transducer and the photoacoustic response of solids is also presented.
