Paper Abstract

It has been shown that a good interpretation of the absorption measurements performed from the photothermal deflection (PD) technique is given from a model including interface absorption. This model is applied to analyze the measurements of the losses on guided propagation, and a comparison with results obtained from PD technique is mae for various single-layer films. W show that the same parameters can explain satisfactorily both measurements. This study confirms the existence of absorbing transition layers close to the glass substrate and at the interfaces of the film.
