Paper Abstract

To extract the extinction coefficient k at 10.6 micrometers of thin films or bare substrates, we present new data analysis of photo thermal measurements. We successively show how to obtain k using analytical formulation taking into account substrate absorption and how to minimize experimental errors. Then we discuss accuracy and reliability for substrates, thin films, and mirrors. Results are given for k values as low as 10-4 for thin films, 10-8 for substrates, and mirror reflectivities higher than 99.8% have been measured.
