A comparative computational study of the finite thickness and semi-infinite photothermal radiometric model is carried out for silicon, germanium, and gallium arsenide. The sensitivity of the photothermal radiometric finite thickness model towards the existence of very thin amorphous layers on crystalline substrates is also explored. This study can be used as an important guide for experimentalists.
