Abstract

In our publication [Opt. Express, 20(7), 8055–8070 (2012)] a convergence issue resulted in a discrepancy between the relative photothermal signal of two models: the paraxial scalar diffraction model and the accurate vectorial generalized multilayer Lorenz-Mie scattering theory which served as a reference. The resolution yields the expected agreement.

TL around a R = 10nm AuNP in PDSM (n0 = 1.46) with Δn = −3.60×10−2, wavelength λ = 635nm, beam-waist ω0 = 281nm. The graph shows the rel. transmitted power contributions of scattering (blue), extinction (red), and their sum (black), for a numerical detection aperture NAd = 0.75 at zp = −zR/2, plotted against the thermal lens cut-off radius normalized to the probing beam-waist rL0. The computed total detectable signal ΔPd saturates for a clipping size of the lens for rL ≈ 5ω0 [3].

Parameters used for calculations are detailed in the caption of Fig. 2 of the original article [1]. b) On-axis z-scan NAd = 0 of the rel. PT signal Φzp. The superimposed grey dashed curve is the approximation Eq. (1) of this errata. c) Scan for NAd = 0.75 (solid and dashed) and NAd = 0.3 (dashed solid and double-dashed solid). d) Scan with central beam stop (inverse aperture), i.e. NAd = [0.5, 0.75]. The semi-transparent curves corresponds to no central beam-stop, NAd = 0.75 from c)
