Abstract
We propose and demonstrate a new photoacoustic method to calculate the absolute optical absorption coefficient of a sample. An exact solution of the wave equation is employed to iteratively fit the detected photoacoustic signals. We fit the ratio of the amplitudes of the characteristic peaks of photoacoustic signals in order to increase fitting speed and reduce the influences of background signals. This method is tested by both numerical simulations and experimental results.
