Description
Summary:This paper describes experimental results of thermal diffusivity measurements performed on different concentrations of aqueous Tartrazine solutions. The measurements are performed using the frequency-resolved thermal lensing technique and the results are compared with the thermal diffusivity value of pure water used as a solvent or host liquid. The results show that at low concentrations, the thermal properties of the solution are roughly equal to those of the water. However, when the concentration is increased, the thermal properties of the solutions diverge from that of the host liquid.
