The influence of multiple optical reflexions on optically generated surface temperature variations has scarcely been considered throughout the literature. In this work, a model of optically generated heat sources in the sample with low optical absorption coefficient is derived. Multiple optical reflexions are considered at both surfaces of the sample exposed to the intensity-modulated laser beam. The impacts of the reflexion coefficient, the absorption coefficient and the thickness of the sample on the amplitude characteristics of photothermal responses are discussed.
