Optical Spectroscopy of Surface Excitations in Molecular Crystals and Monomolecular Layers

Chapter
Part of the The IBM Research Symposia Series book series (IRSS)

Abstract

The detection of molecules at interfaces is a problem of some interest since it is the first step in following processes of more complexity. Organic molecules on solid surfaces or at the interface between media, as for example in the Helmholtz double layer region adjacent to an electrode in an electrochemical cell, can have physical and chemical properties that are quite different from their counterparts in solution and in the bulk of the solid. If these properties could be measured then one would in principle have a probe for monitoring changing surface conditions, including the possibility of following the course of chemical reactions.
