The photoacoustic signal generated by a 2 MHz ultrasound transducer has been detected at 500 Hz modulation frequency by an attached photoacoustic cell. A dominant mechanism for signal generation is the ultrasound absorption in the gas of the cell, where strong acoustic resonances are excited. The periodic heating by ultrasound absorption in the transducer buffer rod and subsequent thermal diffusion into the gas is a second mechanism. Experiment and theory are in reasonable accordance.
