This paper exhibits the possibility of simultaneous detection of thermal non-uniformity in muliti-layer semiconductor structure and the analysis of the thermal properties of non-uniformities using photo-acoustic method in pulse excitations mode. The photo-acoustic method, besides many advantages, is characterized by high linear distortions of the measured signal. The linear distortions are introduced by each element of the measurement set-up. Classical methods of linear distortions elimination for example an inverse filtration in time domain need the transmittance of the measurement set-up to be well known. In the case of photo-acoustic measurement this condition can not be fulfill due to unknown transmittance of photo-acoustic phenomenon.
