Paper Abstract

The problem of measuring supersmall light absorption in materials led to the development of a high-sensitivity optothermal laser technique, thermal lens and interferometer technique being the most widely-known. An optimum combination of the two above methods has been implemented where high sensitivity of optothermal phase-contrast technique (which reached for liquid media 10-9 cm-1 at the pump energy 3 J) was demonstrated. The technique suggested here is quite competitive with other optothermal methods due to its simplicity of performing, absorption linearity of the measured signal and independence of the signal on absorption at the windows of the cell containing the medium under investigation.
