Contaminations of the population lens and transient absorption in the observed thermal lens signal sometimes cause a misinterpretation of the signal. Recently, we have developed several methods to evaluate the relative contributions of these components in the observed thermal lens signal. These methods with recent results are summarized, and merits and limitations of each method are discussed.
