|Title:||Photoacoustic Measurement Of Thermal Diffusivity Of Polymer Foils|
|Abstract:||The photoacoustic measurement of polymer foils, typically 170-200 μm thick, is discussed. It is shown that the measurement based upon the phase lag between the front and rear illuminations is applicable only in a limited range of frequencies from 6 to 12 Hz. The dominant mechanism responsible for the photoacoustic signal, in almost the entire frequency range 10-100 Hz, is proven to be the thermoelastic bending of the foil samples. The thermal diffusivity is then obtained from the frequency dependence of the front-phase illumination data.|
