Abstract
Photothermal response is a process in which the absorption of optical wave in a sample will induce a temperature rise, hence a modification of the refractive index of the sample. By detecting the change of the refractive index, the absorption property of the sample can be obtained. In this paper, an ellipsometric study of the photothermal response is presented. By analyzing the polarization change of the probe beam caused by the pump beam through photothermal response, we can obtain the surface absorption property of the samples we are interested in. Our results indicate that this technique is very promising for the analysis of weak absorption in thin film coatings.
