p-Polarized Multiple-angle Incidence Resolution Spectrometry

  • Takeshi HasegawaEmail author


Multiple-angle incidence resolution spectrometry (MAIRS) is a unique technique built on a chemometric idea to simultaneously reveal the TO and LO energy-loss function spectra (see Chapter  47) of an identical thin film sample deposited on an infrared (IR) transparent substrate (Hasegawa in J Phys Chem B 16:4112–4115 2002 [1]). To prevent the polarization dependence of FT-IR, an improved technique of pMAIRS is developed, which employs only p-polarization. pMAIRS is now becoming a promising technique for quantitative molecular orientation analysis in a thin film (Hasegawa in Anal Chem 79:4385–4389 2007 [2]). Here, only the pMAIRS technique is described.
