Abstract

Abstract It is reported the study of the heat transfer through a homogeneous and isotropic solid exited by square periodic light beam on its front surface. For this, we use the Infrared Photothermal Radiometry in order to obtain the evolution of the temperature difference on the rear surface of three samples, silicon, copper and wood, as a function of the exposure time. Also, we solved the heat transport equation for this problem with the boundary conditions congruent with the physical situation, by means of numerical simulation based in finite element analysis. Our results show a good agreement between the experimental and numerical simulated results, which demonstrate the utility of this methodology for the study of the thermal response of solids.
