Useful data for analyzing TDTR experiments
- Temperature dependence of volumetric heat capacity
- Temperature dependence of thermal conductivity
- rms laser spot sizes measured by spatial correlation of pump and probe. The spatial correlation of the pump and probe increases by 10% from the beginning to end of the delay line for TDTR-II.

- Steady-state heating for absorbed laser power of 1 mW:
- substrate thermal conductivity of 1 W/m-K, without considering heat spreading by Al layer, steady-state heating is 11, 27, 60, 110 K, respectively, .
- with heat spreading by 100 nm thick Al layer of thermal conductivity of 200 W/m-K, steady-state heating is 6.5, 11, 15, and 20 K, respectively.
- substrate thermal conductivity of 0.2 W/m-K in combination with heat spreading by the Al layer, steady-state heating is 15, 22, 27, and 32 K.
- Per pulse heating for absorbed laser power of 1 mW at short delay time:

Filter sets for two-tint approach
- TDTR-II is running with approximately twice the bandwidth (25 nm) of TDTR-I (12 nm).
- From 2014 to April 2019, the filters sets for TDTR-I and TDTR-II were the same. Semrock filters: long-pass LP02-785RE-25 in the pump path; short-pass SP01-785RU-25 in the probe path and in front of the detector. With this filter configuration, the FWHM of the temporal correlation of the pump and probe as measured by a GaP detector for both systems was approximately 1.2 ps.
- After May 2019, the filters for TDTR-I are: SP01-785RU-25 in the pump path; LP02-785RU-25 (titled by about 8 degrees to blue shift by 3 nm) in the probe path; and LP02-785RE-25 in front of the detector. The filters for TDTR-II are: SP01-785RU-25 in the pump path; FF01-776/LP-25 in the probe path; and LP02-785RE-25 (tilted by about 8 degrees to blue shift by 3 nm) in front of the detector. With these filter configurations, the FWHM of the temporal correlation of the pump and probe for TDTR-I is approximately 0.7 ps; for TDTR-II, 0.8 ps.
