Amplitudes of TA signal for F32 and F233 MWNT forests measured at and normalized by sample conductance as a function of . Both raw experimental data (, , top row) and refined oscillating contributions (, , bottom row) are shown. The solid lines are the result of fitting the latter with empirical equations.

Sound pressure generated by the MWNT sheets (S1–S10) and MWNT forests (F32–F233) subjected to TA and PA excitations. TA intensities were normalized by the supplied electric power. PA intensities were normalized by the supplied laser power and optical absorption of samples. The data were taken at , for the first harmonic of the acoustic signal.
