Paraffin oil thermal diffusivity determination using a photothermal deflection setup with a 2.3μm pump: a first step towards methane detection

Abstract : The photothermal deflection technique, also known as "mirage effect", is a nondestructive method of evaluating thermal properties of solid, liquid or gaseous species. This technique will be used to detect pollutant absorption. As the deflection is stronger in liquids than gases, we will first consider the deflection in paraffin oil. We consider a medium that is heated by a modulated laser diode beam, and we measure the deflection of the probe beam passing through the heated region as a function of the distance between the axes of the beams. After some theoretical considerations and numerical simulations, we present the application of this method to the experimental determination of the thermal diffusivity of a liquid sample in excellent agreement with previously known values.
