Photothermal deflection spectroscopy (PDS) is known to be one of the most sensitive techniques for measuring the absorption of weakly absorbing materials. We have applied PDS for measuring the optical absorption of a few polymer samples which are potential candidates for optical fiber or optical waveguide. The results are useful for evaluating the ultimate performance of these polymers in optical communication.
