Abstract: This paper presents quantities, terminology, and symbols
of terms related to photothermal phenomena and used in photothermal
and related spectroscopies. The terms used in the literature to describe
photothermal phenomena and methods are reviewed, and a glossary of terms
is given. The origins of photothermal phenomena, as well as the relations
among various photothermal effects, are summarized. The listed terms
cover the terminology in transient grating, transient lens, photoacoustic
spectroscopy, photothermal radiometry, calorimetry, interferometry,
deflection, reflection, and other related spectroscopies, which use
or are related to photothermal effects.
