Speedy Nonlinear Optical Analysis
Combining a novel laser-probe method with a fast data-analysis technique enables scientists to rapidly differentiate chemically distinct thin films solely on the basis of subtle differences in the optical properties, according to a research team at Purdue University (Anal. Chem., DOI: 10.1021/ac901832u). Changes in the polarization of light reflected from thin films can serve as a probe of the structure, orientation, and . . .
