Paper Abstract

Some recent progress in the utilization of light-induced heating (or photothermal) effects for material testing and processing is described. Material testing applications include moisture adsorption and interfacial thermal contact-resistance measurements, while processing studies include the ablation of thin polymer films using picoseconds ultraviolet laser pulses.
