Abstract

We report on a pump–probe mode-mismatched thermal-lens Z-scan method for the measurement of small absorption coefficients. In this method the pump light beam is focused into the sample to induce a thermal lens, which is tested by a collimated probe-light beam. Comparison between mode-matched and mode-mismatched Z-scan schemes is performed by use of a Fresnel-diffraction approximation model. This method is used to measure the absorption of distilled water and optical glass in the near-infrared and visible regions of the spectrum.
