As the technology has developed and new materials have been produced, it is important to measure the thermal diffusivity of material and to predict the heat transfer in the solid subject to thermal processes. This measurement can be done in a non-contact way using photothermal displacenent spectroscopy. In this study, photothermal displacement method was used to measure the thermal diffusivity quantitatively. The specimens used in this study were the pure materials. The Ar-ion laser was used as an energy source and the periodical deformation induced by this pump laser was detected by the He-Ne laser. The magnitude and the phase angle of deformation gradient were measured. The thermal diffusivity was obtained by analyzing the phase angle of deformation gradient. As the result, comparing with the literature value, the thermal diffusivities of materials measured were showed about 2% error.
