Photoacoustic and Photothermal Phenomena III comprises contributions explaining new topics, relevant theories, novel methods, and the developmentof instrumentation in this active research area - information that is otherwise not available in a single volume. Particular emphasis is placed on the variety of applications of photoacoustic and photothermal techniques in disciplines ranging from environmental, agricultural, medical, and biological sciences to spectroscopy, nondestructive evaluation, materials characterization, heat and mass transfer, kinetics (including ultrafast phenomena), and solid-state and surface physics. This volume provides an excellent overview of the spectrum of activities in the photoacoustic and photothermal field worldwide, and thus is suitable both for the specialist and for the newcomer to this multidisciplinary research area.
