Abstract:

The initial objective of the equipment proposal was the adaptation of polarization modulation infrared reflection adsorption spectroscopy PM-IRRAS to probe samples in an ultrahigh vacuum environment where samples could be prepared and characterized under well-defined conditions. The UHV surface analysis system has been completed and the infrared spectrometer has been adapted to probe samples housed in the vacuum chamber. Experiments are underway probing the adsorption, reaction, and retention of triethylphosphate on VC100.
