The thermal lensing technique is applied to study two-photon absorption of dye molecules in organic solutions. With the use of a differential two-cell thermal lens spectrometer, the contribution due to one-photon absorption by solvent molecules is suppressed. Observed power dependence of the thermal lensing signal confirms the two-photon character of the absorption process.
