To mitigate the issues associated with conventional methodologies for thermal conductivity measurements, such as those related to contact or thermal boundary resistance, noncontact, optical methods provide an alternate measurement technique. In this article, we briefly review the history of such optical methods and explain the principles involved in the thermoreflectance techniques as applied to silicon thin films.
