Application of IETS to Trace Substance Detection

  • Arthur Yelon
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 4)

Abstract

As IETS is very sensitive compared to IR or Raman spectroscopy, it is very promising for trace substance detection, especially for aqueous solutions. We review the work which has been done to date on IETS of solution doped junctions, and show that both qualitative and quantitative measurements should be possible with this technique. Some of the steps which must be taken to make the method generally interesting are reviewed. Finally, the application of IETS to a practical problem, the ozonation of phenol in water, is described.
