|Abstract||Photoacoustic (or more precisely, photothermoacoustic) signals are generated by the absorption of photons, expressed as acoustic waves, and can be related to the incident laser fluence rate. Here a calibration procedure for frequency domain (FD) photoacoustics is presented which utilizes the relationship between photoacoustic (PA) signal amplitude and laser fluence rate. The sample is irradiated with a continuous wave laser which is amplitude modulated at varying frequencies. Applying the calibration procedure to the PA detected signals, a linear relationship is obtained between the fluence rate and the signal amplitude.|
