Abstract

Infrared reflection-absorption spectroscopy (IRRAS) has been used extensively in the study of adsorbates and thin layers on metal surfaces, but little work has been performed on non-metals due to the low sensitivity which results when these materials are used. In this work, thin film structures consisting of a thin layer of a semiconductor (silicon) on a metal (copper) surface are used to increase the sensitivity of the technique for examining layers of poly(methylmethacrylate).
