In situ Spectroscopy
The In situ Spectroscopy group aims for developing strategies for in situ spectroscopic investigations of smart organic surfaces and hybrid-films, particularly with vibrational spectroscopy. The group develops methods in the areas of optical models, evaluation procedures and experimental equipment for in situ study of surfaces in liquid environments (Reflection-Anisotropy-Spectroscopy, Ellipsometry, Raman and Infrared (IR) spectroscopy, IR Microscopy, IR mapping ellipsometry at BESSY II). Combined lab and synchrotron measurements focus on functional films and molecule adsorption on functional surfaces, e.g. stimuli responsive polymer brushes or specific linkers for bio- and solar cell applications. Measurement concepts are developed in order to analyse faster, with higher sensitivity and higher lateral resolution.
