Paper Abstract

Tunable diode lasers have made possible new techniques to study the vibrations of molecules in solids and on surfaces. We will focus on two of these: persistent nonphotochemical hole burning (NPHB) for the study of molecules in solids and electroreflectance vibrational spectroscopy (EVS) for the study of molecules on surfaces. We give an overview of both techniques. The system that we use for EVS measurements is described in detail. We also discuss the sources of diode laser intensity noise and the approach taken to measure EVS signals accurately over a wide frequency range.
