Abstract

To the best of our knowledge, a combined sensitive technique employing both laser calorimetry and a surface thermal lens scheme for measuring absorption values of optical coatings is presented for the first time. Laser calorimetric and pulsed surface thermal lens signals are simultaneously obtained with a highly reflecting UV coating sample irradiated at 193   nm . The advantages and potential applications of the combined technique and the experimental factors limiting the measurement sensitivity are discussed.
