4. Linear behavior of Tmax with Pabs power Pabs described in Sec. II B, Fig. 3(a). We then plotted separately on Fig. 12 the variation Tmax with Pabs at low powers for each thickness. We added on this figure the uncertainties on temperature measurements deduced from the Lorentzian fit. The linear behavior at small Pabs appears clearly for the three investegated thicknesses. We found Tmax = 1.9 ± 0.3 ◦C/mW for H = 185 μm (a), 1.5 ± 0.2 ◦C/mW for H = 310 μm (b) and 1.6 ± 0.2 ◦C/mW for H = 480 μm (c).
