Abstract
Although a variety of surfactant based processes of technological importance occur in the presence of temperature gradients, very little information is available on the thermal diffusion of these macromolecules in solution. In this work optical interferometry is applied to the study of photothermal properties of aqueous solutions of surfactants. This technique allows to visualize spatio-temporal changes of the refractive index of the samples produced by the local heating of the solvent and the solute redistribution set up by thermal diffusion. We present preliminary results on the photothermal response to absorption of cw laser radiation of aqueous solutions of ionic and nonionic surfactants in the presence of trace amounts of the malaquite green dye.
