Abstract

The precise determination of the absolute absorptance of a laser component is of high scientific and commercial importance. Our intention is to demonstrate that laser calorimetry can be a reliable and sensitive characterization tool for this purpose. Furthermore, the limitations of laser calorimetry are discussed and suggestions for possible revisions of the ISO 11551 (International Organization for Standardization, Geneva, Switzerland) standard are made. Finally, laser calorimetry is compared with photothermal deflection methods with respect to their practicability in different fields of laser optic characterization.
