    Introduction. The thermal diffusion flowmetry (TDF) is a technique that allows the measurement of the regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) through an implanted microprobe in a cerebral region of interest. The monitoring is continuous, real-time and quantitative (ml/100g/min). The purpose of our...

    A non-contact technique is presented that provides information on thermal diffusivity at the cubic micron scale in metal surfaces. It relies on the simultaneous fit of the frequency dependence of two mechanisms that appear when heating the surface of the sample with a modulated laser beam, the...

    An innovative focus error detection method is presented that is only sensitive to surface curvature variations, canceling both thermoreflectance and photodefelection effects. The detection scheme consists of an astigmatic probe laser and a four-quadrant detector. Nonlinear curve fitting of the...
