Analytical and finite element analysis modeling methods of the pulsed-laser excited photothermal (PT) lens signal of solids samples surrounded by air are presented. The analytical and finite element analysissolutions for the temperatures induced in the sample and in the air were found to agree over the range of conditions in this report. Model results show that the air contribution to the total PT lens signal is significant in many cases. In fact, these solutions open up the possibility of applying the pulsed excited thermal lens method for accurate prediction of the heat transfer to the coupling fluid and subsequently to study the gas surrounding the samples by using a known material solid sample
