The present investigation deals with the deformation in micropolar thermoelastic diffusion medium due to inclined load subjected to thermal laser pulse. Normal mode analysis technique is used to solve the problem. The inclined load is assumed to be a linear combination of a normal load and a tangential load. The closed form expressions of normal stress, tangential stress, couple stress, temperature distribution, and mass concentration are obtained. A computer program has been developed to derive the physical quantities numerically. The variation of normal stress, tangential stress, coupled stress, temperature change, and mass concentration is depicted graphically to show the effect of relaxation times and mass concentration. Some particular cases of interest are deduced from the present investigation.
