Ganguly, P and Somasundaram, T (1983) A novel technique for enhancing photoacoustic signals from solids. In: Applied Physics Letters, 43 (2). pp. 160-162.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
Enhancement of the photoacoustic signal from condensed materials by several folds is achieved by the introduction of a liquid with high vapor pressure in the photoacoustic cell. The enhancement is especially marked for low absorption coefficients and high chopping frequencies. Typically the enhancement is two to nine times in the presence of diethyl ether at 293 K. A linear relationship is observed between the enhancement and the vapor pressure of the liquid.
