Photoacoustic (PA) responses from very-thin poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) films were investigated at various lamination conditions. The PA signal increased when the dye-doped films were laminated up to five layers, but tended to saturate beyond five layers. When the blank films were superimposed on the dye-doped film, the signal became smaller. The signal was larger when the dye-doped film was arranged outermost in the laminated film assembly of dye-doped and blank films. The results imply the effect of film vibration on the PA response.
