The principle to determine the slope of a curve at the incident point. AO is the incident laser beam. ON and ON’ are normal to the sample surface before and during thermal loading. TO is the tangent line of the curve at the laser incident point and OB and OC are reflected beams from the sample before and during thermal loading.
