An IR-External Reflection Spectroscopy Sample Holder Which Facilitates Reproducible Substrate Positioning

Stole, Scott M.; Porter, Marc D.

Infrared external reflection spectroscopy (IR-ERS) has become an important tool for probing the molecular architecture of chemically modified surfaces. Combined with considerations based on classical electromagnetic theory, this technique has been used to characterize monomolecular and thin polymeric films at surfaces with a variety of reflectivities. Research efforts in the areas of adhesion, electrocatalysis, corrosion inhibition, and microelectronics have all benefitted from the information obtained by IR-ERS.
