A picosecond pump-probe technique is used to reveal the optoacoustic response of a single micrometric carbon fiber. The signature of the intrinsic geometric scattering resulting from acoustic reflections at free surface of the cylindrical cavity is contained in the signals. The fiber transverse elastic properties and the fiber complex refractive index at 796 nm are measured nondestructively.
